Our Philosophy

We aim to establish a lifelong emotional connection between campers and the land by providing positive experiences with nature and agriculture. Camp activities are carefully planned to meet this goal while creating meaningful and memorable experiences at the same time. At the heart of our camp program are three leading concepts:


Our staff works to build a supportive camp community. While campers meet new friends they are also learning about their place in the natural world. They learn to respect their peers and the diversity of their surroundings.


Our camp program focuses on the interdependence of all living things. Campers learn this through chores on the farmyard, explorations of habitats, and foods we grow and prepare to share together as a community.


Through our emphasis on community and interdependence, campers learn to take personal responsibility for their world through responsible farming and the conservation of wild open spaces.

What Others Are Saying . . .

“Our son was nervous about going to camp and he came home the first day saying he loved it and he was going back next year. He learned something every day and didn’t complain about anything. We were so happy with the level of knowledge and supervision that the counselors provided.”—Camp Parent
