Crew Camp is a fairly new addition to our line up designed to serve kids who love farm work. We are looking here for the kids who turn to us at game times and ask if there are more chores or if the animals need anything. This camp is led by farm employees who need to get things accomplished in their day and are happy to have kids join them in that effort. Don’t get us wrong, we have fun doing work, but it’s important to note that though we take breaks and may end up engaging in some activities for no reason other than our own enrichment/enjoyment, the focus here is on serving the farm. Some kids come to us as five year olds ready and willing to work like this, others grow into it, and some will never enjoy it and shouldn’t register to participate in this camp.
It’s very difficult to determine in advance exactly what tasks a week will have as a focus. Our schedule is dependent mainly on Mother Nature. We do strive however to keep things varied and engaging.
This camp runs every week. Mon-Fri: June 10- Aug 23.
$175/week for Crew Camp Members. Includes a vegetable share at the end of week, lots of time with an experienced farmer, skill building in activities like milking, fencing, gardening, halter training, carpentry, etc. We do make exceptions to the age limit for kids we think will be a good fit for this program. If your child has come to camp here before, or you have questions, we are happy to talk to you about whether we think your child would enjoy the program.
