PROGRAMS

Campers ages 5 – 12 years of age will have the opportunity to explore our farm’s animals, gardens and fields and discover how they weave together to create the farming cycle. Each day campers build a stronger connection to the farm and the origins of their food and clothing.

Campers begin each day with feeding and caring for the farm animals and their own “adopted” animal. Throughout the day campers participate in a variety of activities, games and crafts. The week culminates as families join campers for a parade of the adopted animals which they have worked with during the week. Returning campers will find new adventures awaiting them.

*One week reserved for campers ages 5-6 years of age.
