Come on out for a week to help harvest from the wild, tend to the animals and complete farm projects.
Towering oaks, fruit bearing trees, chickens, sheep and ducks:
a welcoming landscape to share for the week. Farm School campers
learn new skills for their lifetime toolbox, form friendships
and return home with increased confidence.
Run by environmental educators with many years of experience,
this camp offers a rare opportunity for a small group of children
to explore, expand and express themselves in ways
that only long summer days in the country can provide.
We are opening our home to you for a few weeks this summer;
the magic is just too good to keep all to ourselves.
