We keep our camps small in numbers, so sign up early to give your camper an unforgettable experience on the farm!

Grounded in a comprehensive and dynamic approach to food, farming and fun, this session allows campers to explore everything that the farm has to offer in a safe and inclusive way.  Campers will be busy with our five focus areas: planting, harvesting, animal care, cooking, and creative art. From seeding veggies, to harvesting garlic, to planting kale, to creative art and preparing delicious salsa, campers will be deeply rooted in this unique journey.  Aside from their farm tasks, campers will also bring home a daily taste of the farm and lots of recipes to share with friends and family – campers new cooking and farm skills will continue to bring nourishment and smiles long after camp ends!

Sign your child up to be a Farm Explorer and give them an experience they will remember and love forever!

Future Farmers: Ages 10-15
July 26th to August 3rd

The future farmers program is for the slightly older camper.  The program focuses on all aspects of farm production with a dash of leadership and team building.   We also take into account the camper’s ability to engage longer with tasks and also their ability for some light tool use – both can lead to some incredible garden outcomes and mouth-watering farm products! Most of the week is spent creating, learning, and planning in preparation for Thursday’s Pop-Up market table at our Harvest Share pick up. All proceeds from the “pay-what-you-can” market table go towards a Camp Scholarship established by the Future Farmers in 2014.  This is a special program that allows campers to become leaders and guide their own experience on the farm and truly create a positive change for the future.
