Come spend a week on the farm! 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. The camp integrates hands-on farming such as gardening and animal care, cooperative games, and nature exploration with other typical summer fun activities for a memorable and diverse summer camp experience. You will feed animals; hike in the woods; play in the water; wash, dye and felt wool from one of our sheep; enjoy hayrides around the farm and much more!

“Farmers in Training” is designed to provide children ages 11-12 a more active role in the care of livestock, vegetable gardening, hands-on beekeeping, blacksmith demonstrations, 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.
Counselor Aides (C.A.)
Campers who are 13-18 years of age may register as a Counselor Aide. Counselor Aides provide assistance to counselors on a daily basis and help harvest garden produce. The C.A. program is limited to 8 campers per week. Upon registration, each camper will be asked to submit two references. Once their references are checked, the registration will be finalized.
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, we cannot guarantee it.
Specialized Staff Training
We provide specialized training for our seasonal staff that includes Child Safety and Awareness, Customer Service, First Aid and Infant, Child, and Adult CPR, General Safety Training, among other topics.
