2018 Summer Farm Camp Sessions

Farm Adventures  ($225)
Everyday on the Farm is an adventure! Campers feed our friendly farm animals, play engaging group games, build farm crafts, cook and prepare food right from the farm, help care for our plants in the gardens, hike, and much more! Camper activity groups are divided by age to provide age-appropriate and camper-centered programming.

Seedlings ($225)
Campers aged 5-7 explore the farm, our gardens, and meet our friendly farm animals all while guided by our knowledgeable farm camp staff. They’ll harvest and prepare food themselves, play barnyard games, groom animals, and create fond fun farmyard memories!

Farm Chef Camp ($275)
This unique cooking camp is a local favorite (just like our food)! Campers gain an introduction to food production by harvesting ingredients right on the farm, and then gain knowledge of the basics of cooking, including knife skills (closely supervised by our attentive camp staff). Campers are encouraged to explore the joys of preparing great food!

Veterinary Science Camp  ($245)
This camp focuses on the needs of our friendly farm animals. Guided by our knowledgeable camp staff, campers gain an understanding of animal health, and are given the tools to observe, diagnose, and treat case studies in farm animal care. This camp always fills up fast!

Sprouts ($80)
Come experience the wonders of the Farm first-hand with your young child. We will visit with animals, make farm-friendly crafts, and play group games. One adult (18+) must attend camp with each child.  Designed for ages 4-5.

Wilderness Camp  ($245)
Learn skills that will last a lifetime. Campers will learn basic wilderness survival skills, from using a compass and map to building shelters. Listen to the “call of the wild” and join us on the Farm!
