“Where are all the campers?”

The Salomon Farm crew and animals really miss our campers! We know how many future farmers look forward to visiting Salomon’s Farmin’ Fun Day Camp each year so we wanted to make something special to keep kids connected to camp. This summer we are offering Farm Camp Boxes, a fun way to bring some of your favorite camp activities home with you! The boxes are full of different crafts, activities, ideas to explore Salomon Farm Park, and opportunities to write letters to all your favorite Salomon animals.  


The $15.00 Farm Camp boxes can be pre-ordered by calling Eden Lamb at 260 427 6008  OR emailing Eden at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.     

Orders can be picked up at the Salomon Farm Park Farmer’s Market, 817 West Dupont Road, on Wednesdays  OR at 705 East State Blvd.


Whether you pick up a camp box or not, we invite families to still come out to Salomon Farm Park, open daily 6am-11pm. You can say hello to the animals, stroll through the gardens, hike our trails, or shop locally at our weekly Farmers’ Markets (Wednesday’s, 4-7pm).


General Information for 2021

Come spend a week at Salomon Farm Park! Our Farmin’ Fun Day Camp provides a stimulating, healthy and beautiful environment where you will learn about soil, plants, animals and the source of our food. Our campers will be able to continue the cycle of farm-to-table in our NEW teaching kitchen. The camp integrates hands-on farming such as gardening and animal care, cooperative games, blacksmithing, and nature exploration for a memorable and diverse summer camp experience. You will care for farm animals; hike the woods; play in the creek; learn about beekeeping; wash, dye and felt wool from one of our sheep; enjoy hayrides around the farm and much more! Some of the activities listed above are for certain age groups.

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. 

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.
