  • 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 and the challenges facing our environment; activities that foster kindness, compassion and community; personal and group challenges to build self-confidence and team spirit; 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)!  

WHAT TO BRING: All campers are asked to wear sneakers/closed toed shoes (no sandals, flip flops or crocs).  Dress for the weather (shorts/bathing suits/change of clothes for hot days - there will be water play for those that are interested and rubber boots/rain jackets for wet days - we do have plenty of indoor/semi indoor spaces/activities but we still try to get outside on wet days!   Lunch, snacks, water bottles. We have lemonade and ice tea and some candy treats at the canteen! 


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! 

NOTE: Each spring we spend hundreds of hours on administrative duties, logging in registrations, sending out receipts, preparing camp schedules for each camp, each week of our very busy season. As such  a $50 non-refundable/non-transferable deposit is required to hold your spot.
CANCELATIONS: Staffing, camp materials and tee shirts are all planned/purchased months in advance of camp based on registrations received. As such, the balance of camp fees will be refunded if a cancelation is made in writing (email) by June 1. After June 1, the balance will only be refunded if we can fill the spot.
