The Farm Camp program is designed to provide children with opportunities to experience organic gardening, farm ecology, sustainable living and animal husbandry in a fun, educational and recreational environment.

Our goal is to expose children to the interconnectedness of all living things. Through creative play, work and exploration children will develop an appreciation for the sustainable farm ecosystem, a sense of environmental stewardship and the knowledge that growing your own organic food is not only fun but better for you and for the earth.

In each camp, children will learn in a safe constructive and fun environment. Our animal partners help us learn responsibility, teamwork, respect, healthy conflict resolution and compassion.

Dan and Emily, What an awesome idea, I wish I was between 9-14 again. Good luck with the camp, hope to see you again at the beach. Kerstin and I will be up in Maine from 8/22 to 8/30 love to catch up. I will give you a call. Tim

What a great idea, and I can't think of a nicer family to do it! Any plans for an adult camp in the future? Love the pictures of your new addition too. Thanks for sharing with us. Debbie
