White Oak Stables summer camps are fun, creative and educational. We will keep your kids from sitting in front of computers, tablets, phones and video games all day long by keeping them engaged through creative expression, fitness and learning. We can provide your children with a one of a kind experience they will never forget in a beautiful, serene farm setting. See some of our past summer camp sessions!
