In 2019 we ran our first summer camps and they were a huge hit. Our small-sized camps gave children a true hands-on experience, almost as though they lived on our farm for a week. By 2022, many of our camps sold out in under one hour from when we opened registration in January. (Have a look here at this beautiful writeup of our camps in Connecticut Food & Farm Magazine). While we love how special our camp experience has become we have been looking to improve availability of our camps to more children and for more weeks during the summer.
As an exciting solution, NEW in 2023, we will be offering camp sessions to accommodate children from age 5-16 for more weeks in the summer as well as increasing the capacity of our camps by adding a new Outdoor Skills component to our program!
Children will rotate between 3 areas of focus each day: Livestock education, Nature Art and Outdoor Skills. We are very excited to add this curriculum to our program to continue to “find fun ways to get dirty“, something so essential to a healthy childhood.
We recommend joining our mailing list to stay in the loop about signup dates or becoming a Shepherd Level Member or higher to enjoy all of the programming benefits as well as an exclusive Early Registration week.
Please also note that while the registration fee is not refundable you may transfer it to another child (that fits in the age group selected) once you notify us of the change.
