*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/21/2020
Be a farmer for a week and experience summer life on a real working farm. 2019 will be our twenty second year of summer camp and it will be a great one!

Regular Camps

School Aged Children (5 to 14 years old) may register for 1/2 day morning (9:00a.m. -12:00 noon), 1/2 day afternoon (1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.), or full day sessions (9:00a.m. - 4:00 p.m.). With a different theme each day, campers are busy learning about animals, plants and nature, history, science, crafts and food. Each week includes fun and games of all kinds, special guests, and creative endeavors.  Our campers are assured of a wonderful and entertaining summer experience in a very unique environment.  Eight weeks are available this year and every camper gets a special farm tee shirt. Snacks are provided morning and afternoon.  Full day campers must bring their own lunch.

School age campers are divided into several groups:

Explorers and Senior Campers

~Our Explorer group follows children 7-11 through the rest of their elementary years. Due to the many requests from campers and parents we have extended the age of older campers to accommodate the 12-14 year old group. These Senior Campers will assist counselors, have more responsible farm chores, extended craft projects and will be encouraged to participate in creative independent and group presentations.  AM and PM sessions, See below for prices.

Kinder Camp

~Our Kinder Kamp group is specially designed for tots and early school-aged children.  We maintain a 6:1 camper to counselor ratio with this group.  This active hands-on program will surely delight your youngsters as they experience and learn about the animals and plants of the farm.  Crafts, snacks, music, and lots of fun will be had by all.  Classes are small, so register early! Ages: 3 up to 6 years.

Counselor In Training

~In addition we are offering a Counselor In Training program for select 15 to 16 year olds who apply and meet the criteria.  This certification program will give CIT's the necessary training and experience to be able, upon completion, to apply for work as a paid camp counselor after two years (or at age 18).  AM and PM sessions,Any one interested in this program must apply by mail or in person.   See below for prices.  Click here for more info on the CIT program
