Don't let the name fool you??KidzArt isn't just for youngsters. The educational center's roaming teachers set up art-education classes and camps at nearly every place you can expect a large gathering: schools, recreation centers, churches, and assisted-living facilities. By presenting students with supplies and easy-to-learn techniques, the instructors hope to provide everyone??no matter how skilled they might be??with an outlet for their creativity.
For children and teens, that means funneling their energy into creating works with a variety of media. KidzArt's method, which is based in education and child development, helps them learn to focus and overcome mistakes with critical thinking and patience. Adults, meanwhile, make time for an artistic escape from their busy days, painting masterpieces while chatting with friends and unwinding with a tasty beverage. And elderly people may discover a new talent when art instructors schedule their diverting activities at senior-living centers.
When not teaching visitors how to ride, Christina Hutton lavishes care upon her horses, including feedings, cleanings, and basic medical treatments. She lives on the farm, and rises early to watch over its expanse, which includes a seven-stall barn, large pastures surrounded by pillowy trees, and a jumping area with white fence hurdles rather than the sleeping serfs in old-timey jumping facilities. During the day, she and her team of instructors train novice and experienced equestrians in hunter and jumper techniques during private and group lessons. In addition to more studious pursuits, Christina and her staff also guide saddle-mounted pony rides, and coordinate arts, crafts, and games during children's birthday parties.
Though the same catfish logo still peeks out from a red "C," its barbels draping over the side, the Carolina Mudcats are part of a new era of minor-league baseball in North Carolina. Two years after the original franchise left for Pensacola, Florida, in 2010, a new team arrived in Zebulon to don the signature red jerseys. As the new Mudcats spawned, so too did new affiliations—the team is now the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the MLB's Cleveland Indians, and mascot Muddy the Mudcat now trolls the stands of Five County Stadium, where a 300-square-foot videoboard broadcasts instant replays of the outfielders' most breathtaking stretches.
When each of Learn To Shoot North Carolina's NRA-certified instructors held his first gun, he was also embracing an inherent part of who he is. Instructors spent their childhoods shooting sporting clays and hunting before transferring their marksmanship skills to careers in law enforcement or the armed forces. Through Learn To Shoot North Carolina's assemblage of courses, instructors help pupils familiarize themselves with various firearms and earn NRA certification. Their shooting range hones marksmen's skills as they practice with their own handguns or rented pieces. Learn to Shoot also offers recreational activities, such as Zombie Smash, where hunters step into the surrounding forest, firing at cutouts of zombies while trying to forget about the pet zombie they helped raise on their uncle's farm.

In autumn, the verdant acres of the Jolley Family Fun Farm shroud themselves in golden corn tassels and pumpkin baubles to entertain guests with wholesome outdoor adventures. The pirate-influenced park puts a twist on traditional farm festivities with a pirate ship made of hay bales and hayrides routinely marauded by cornstalks wearing eye-patches. Kids can scamper through a shark-shaped mini maze or build castles in a sandbox full of corn kernels. An eight-acre pirate-themed cornfield maze dares visitors to enter its meandering lanes, populated with 27 activity stations that dazzle maze-explorers with mind puzzles, pirate factoids, and mirages of swashbuckling turkeys. Though not included in this Groupon, guests can recover from overdoses of fresh air at the Snack Shack or pick their own pumpkin to decorate at one of the Funky Pumpkin Face stations.
