The Barn at Spring Brook Farm is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization located on a 17-acre farm in West Chester, PA. We serve children ages 2-12 with physical, cognitive and/or developmental disabilities. We are the only organization to offer these unique services in the Greater Philadelphia Region.

The Barn achieves its mission through three main programs:
Individual Programs, Camp Geronimo and Educational Field Trips. Every year The Barn also offers several events geared to local families who have children with disabilities. These include an Autumn Festival, Spring & Summer Socialization Events and ‘Pancakes with Santa’.

In addition, The Barn provides parent support in the form of seminars and mutual support groups and as well as a lending library of resources for children with special needs.

Programs Include:
Individual Programs – The Barn at Spring Brook Farm offers an Individual Program that allows children to participate in animal-assisted activities one hour a week for 12 consecutive weeks. Families work with our Program Manager to set goals and track progress over the term. Each child works one-on-one with a trained volunteer with the goal of complementing existing therapies and targeting focus areas. Progress reports and individualized goal tracking is provided to families after 6 and 12 weeks.

Camp Geronimo – A Day at Camp Geronimo Your child will start the day by being transported on a very special hayride from the end of our scenic country lane to The Barn. Since the wagon is handicapped-accessible, all children are able to participate.

Educational Field Trips – The Barn at Spring Brook Farm offers local schools and organizations serving the special needs community the opportunity to participate in our educational field trips.

Socialization Events – Socialization Events are held quarterly. We host a Spring Fling; Summer Splash; Autumn Festival and Pancakes with Santa.
