What do we offer?

Barnyard Buddies

Barnyard Buddies Camps are designed to give our smallest campers, ages 3 to 5 years old, an authentic, hands-on experience on our working farm. Small groups enhance the comfort level for each camper. Campers make new friends, learn new skills and have fun on the farm. Each camp session has a different theme, but all have common, age-appropriate, program goals: challenging ourselves, learning to work in a community, and connecting with nature. Dress for the weather, because each day will be outside, rain or shine! All campers MUST be toilet trained.

Our themes for summer include:

  • Five Senses Farm Fun

  • Farm on Foot Explorer Camp

  • Little Sprouts Garden Camp

Farm Camp

Campers, ages 6 to 10, will spend the day on the farm, engaging in sustainable gardening, animal care, and exploring 80+ acres of farmland. Each day, time is spent cooking and preparing fresh snacks in the kitchen, strengthening the connection between agriculture and everyday food choices.  Each week is themed differently but all weeks offer campers the opportunity for animal interactions, garden time and cooking our freshly harvested food, and a camper choice period! 

This year's summer themes are:

  • Animal Excursions

  • Living Off The Land

  • Goats N' Gardens

  • Outdoor Adventures

Advanced Camp

Our Advanced Camps offer our older campers, ages 11 through 14, a more specific experience based on their choice of theme. These camps are designed to utilize the unique characteristics of our working farm to create fun learning experiences in animal and veterinary sciences to engaging outdoor experiences such as camping or our ropes course. 

This summer's Advanced Camp themes:

  • Equine Excursion

  • Science in the Kitchen

  • Teen VS Wild

  • Vet Science

  • Animal Science
