  • Farm Animal Camps
Welcome to Farm Animal Camp! Your child's days will be filled with: caring for, and getting to know, our farm animals - their needs and unique personalities; animal and nature-based games that expand our awareness and understanding of the natural world; activities that foster kindness, compassion and community; personal and group challenges to build self-confidence and group unity; storytelling and crafts, stream wanders to cool us down, wilderness exploration and so much more! 

Farm camps have weekly themes (even the weeks that share the same theme will include different games and activities so NO TWO CAMPS ARE EXACTLY ALIKE and kids can keep coming back week after week for more farm fun)!  

Farm Camp runs 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Early drop off from 7:45 am; late pick up to 5 pm at no additional cost (after 5 pm a charge of a $1 per minute paid directly to the camp leader applies). AGES 5 and up!
