. . . floating in a pond, splashing through creeks, hiking a leaf-canopied trail, catching a wily fish, and making new friends. This perfect summer day happens at Whippoorwill Farm Day Camp, located on a 50-acre farm in Williamson County, Tennessee.
Whippoorwill Summer Day Camp
Here at Whippoorwill, we’ve been welcoming kids to our family-run farm for over 40 years. We are happy to be one of the top summer day camps in the Nashville and Franklin Tennessee areas.
Every year, roughly 250 campers come to Whippoorwill each summer. Many of those campers turn into future counselors and we even have some on our staff!
Even though we’ve been around for quite some time, our focus stays the same. We want to provide children with a day camp full of various activities in a safe and homey environment. Children deal with so much “noise” in their everyday life and our camp is an opportunity for them to enjoy new activities and make new friends.
We don’t allow cell phones, tablets, or any other electronics on-site as we want your children to focus on the day’s tasks at hand!
Our interest groups, also called “sign-ups”, are the most important part of the day and are what sets us apart from other camps.
Campers sign up for two activities before lunch and three activities after lunch. Campers listen to the many activities being offered by the counselors and then choose what they would like to do that period. This is an important time for campers to make their own decisions. We encourage each child to try new activities throughout their week. Learn more about activities.
Parents, we have a webpage just for you, including FAQs and a checklist of what to pack.
