Summer is an exciting time here at the farm. The grounds are just buzzing with life and everywhere you look seems to offer a new opportunity for learning and enjoyment. At our Fun on the Farm Camp, children have the chance to become engaged with the farm on a much deeper level. Campers will work alongside staff members in hands-on outdoor activities and assisting with chores relevant to the operation of the farm. Each session also includes animal care, horseback riding, crafts, vegetable planting and harvesting, hiking, games and more. Our hope is that campers’ on-the-farm experiences translate into a better understanding of the natural world which we are all connected to and dependent upon for nourishment.
The most important part about this program is that your child will be having so much fun they won't realize they are learning more about animals, farming, and nature! We believe experiences in nature are essential for one’s cognitive, physical and emotional well-being. Our time in nature is designed to strengthen connections to self, others and the Earth.
Our goal is to build skills for connection, awareness, and self-confidence. We work hard to ensure that our camps are welcoming, exciting, and nurturing. Our all-outdoor camps provide nature immersion and adventures for children of all ages.
Our experienced and inspiring instructors guide the children in engaging outdoor-based activities, awareness games, experiential knowledge of plants and animals, natural craft, and more.
We do a number of special themed days too and our activities will revolve around that day's theme such as Wild West, Pirate, Medieval, etc!

- Horseback riding lessons and trail rides
