Planning a birthday shindig is easy when the sun is shining, the air is warm, and kids and parents alike seem happy just hangin’ outdoors. But if a bouncy house and burgers on the barbie have you saying, “been there, done that,” then oh, do we have a list for you. These awesome outdoor birthday spots will put the thrill back into your kid’s birthday celebration, and not just the younger guests. Some of these venues promise to put a capital F in Fun for parents too!

Camp Olympia

As much as you’d like to, you probably can’t buy your little one her very own pony, but at Camp Olympia you can give her a pony ride party. Camp Olympia is a riding center, nursery school, and sports camp dedicated to nurturing children through positive development. They feature birthday parties with a private, fenced picnic area in a serene country setting, and 45 minutes of guided pony rides. Older children can learn to groom, saddle, lead and care for their horse. Party packages start at $295.
