Farmin’ Fun Day Camp
Check back in the spring for information on the 2016 Farmin' Fun Day Camp!
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!

NEW!! A postcard will be mailed out to each camper a week before their scheduled week reminding them of the upcoming week’s events along with an email that will be sent to the registered email address with all the information needed for the upcoming week. Keep a look out for this email! (If you do not have an email address on file your confirmation will come in the mail in lieu of the postcard.)
“Farmers in Training” is designed to provide children ages 11 and older 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 and who have attended AT LEAST 2 weeks of Farm Camp as an F.I.T. may register as a Counselor Aide. Counselor Aides provide assistance to counselors on a daily basis, help harvest garden produce and help with the Salomon Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays. The C.A. program is limited to 8 campers per week. Upon registration, each camper will be asked to submit two references. Once the 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.
Farmin’ Fun Day Camp is held at Salomon Farm Park, 817 W. Dupont Rd. in Fort Wayne.
Campers must be of minimum age by the start of their session.
