Farm Camp offers a wide variety of farm activity
Our Farm Camp offers educational, hands on fun for children of all ages. Kids choose an animal to "adopt" for the week, learn about and care for. At the end of the week, parents and loved ones are invited to our big black barn for the kids to present their animal (costume and all). Confidence grows with each new experience, some of which include learning how to ward of predators with a slingshot and paint pellets, collect farm fresh eggs, shear sheep, learn how to fish, and so much more! Camp is enhanced with fun camp songs, obstacle courses, team building activities and more. Every day is a bit different but jam packed with fun!
