F.I.T.
“Farmers in Training” is designed to provide children ages 12 and older a more active role in the care of livestock, vegetable gardening, hands-on beekeeping, blacksmithing, farm tours, and campfire cookouts on Fridays. Farmers in Training harvest and sell their vegetables at the Farmer’s Market in addition to participating in games and other fun activities. Due to COVID-19 FIT campers will not participate in selling produce at the Farmers' Market. 

C.I.T. 
"Counselors in Training" is for campers 13-18 years of age who have completed 2 weeks of F.I.T. Counselors in Training are role models for the younger campers. The program is designed to train youth how to be confident leaders among their peers. C.I.T.s will have opportunities to learn important teambuilding, leadership and agricultural skills as they assist camp counselors in leading activities. The program is limited to 8 campers per week. Each camper will be required to submit two references to complete their registration.

Camp Buddies

Children who wish to attend camp together must indicate this on the registration form and both children must request it. We will do our best to place the campers together as requested, however, due to the volume of registrations and the lottery processing system along with the age groupings for effective learning, we cannot guarantee it.

Specialized Staff Training 

We provide specialized training for our staff that includes Child Safety and Awareness, Customer Service, First Aid, Infant/Child/Adult CPR, and General Safety Training, as well as inclusivity training provided by the Autism Society for Indiana and Turnstone Center for Children and Adults with Disabilities.
