Farm Camp offers a wide variety of farm/Team 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 farm so the kids can 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 balls, 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! We book so quickly due to our campers coming year after year and then earning a Jr Counselor title and on to a being employed here at the farm as a Sr Counselor!. We are unique because your children are counseled by past campers who have a passion for animals and spending time on this farm. No week of camp can compare to the education, fun they will experience in a ratio of 1 to 6. It may be hard to believe but your child will say this has been the best week ever and write about it on their essay when back to school. Our goal is safety first and making it a very special week of their summer!  Camp is for ages 6-12 years old and approved Jr counselors can continue on!
