What is farm camp?
Our camp is for like-minded animal lovers who want to make a difference. We give kids hand-on experience with animals of all kinds, while promoting responsible pet ownership, increased education among our campers and community, and provide volunteer opportunities throughout the area. We strive to tap into the wide range of skills and talents of our campers while improving social skills and creating a heightened sense of achievement. The camp will also provide a strong sense of accomplishment by increasing their community involvement and working together for a cause.
water water everywhere!
When the day gets hot the kids get wet! With our perfect little river the kids can take a dip and swing from a tree or take a ride down our 100 foot water slide!
Everyone will get relief from the crazy farm life with some down time. This includes campfires, splitting up to enjoy favorite animals, working on a craft or simply sitting outside and taking in the scenery.
What does it take to own an animal? How long do they live? What animals makes sense for your family? Here at camp we will answer all of those questions plus many more!
Kids love scouting around the property looking for frogs, crayfish and other things found in nature.
We will play a variety of camp games that every kid of every age will enjoy!
