Farm Camp


Farm Camp was the first program started at the farm in 1996. What began as a trial two week program has grown into a community of summer friends. This summer we begin our 21st year on the farm. We grow to serve more children and families each year.

Farm camp is a day camp program for children 4-13 years old. Children are hands on involved in the everyday activities of a small working farm. Each day includes farm chores, agriculture lessons, harvesting, cooking or nature projects. Nutrition and ecology are intrinsic parts of the experience.

Children come from all walks of life and many different surrounding communities to join our summer programs. We welcome all and provide scholarships when needed. Although the lesson plan is the same for each weekly summer session, we are working and learning in a naturally changing environment which makes every week a little different.

Our goal is always to follow the child’s excitement and wonder as we visit and learn about the special places on the farm. From the barnyard to the gardens to a very special secret place it is a week of new and exciting discovery.

Come grown with us this summer.
