    Welcome to Homegrown Fun in East Asheville!

    The great outdoors is our playground. From nature play to arts and crafts, cooking to exploring, every day is packed with activities that kids love.

    Mornings are spent on our property in East Asheville and the 150 acres of conservation land a few minute walk way. With caring staff by your child's side, we create a welcoming, empowering and super safe in all ways space.  We begin the day with games, obstacle courses and activities to quench your child's thirst for movement. Then we move into circle time to anchor our container of community, discuss our nature theme for the day, and preview our day.

    Joyful arts and crafts, song, nature play, cooking, and yoga, are followed by lunch.

    And when the sun is shining high, we're off on afternoon adventures! From hiking on our local lands to building sculptures at an artist's studio, spreading kindness with random acts of goodness, and splashing in cool creeks, there's never a dull moment at Camp Summer Haven.
