Farm Camp Circle

Campers can expect to get their hands dirty while exploring pieces of Live Earth’s 150 acres in both organic vegetable row crop production and fruit orchards. In addition to learning about life as an organic vegetable farmer, campers will spend time getting to know our herd of goats, our milking cow, Bella, and visit with the chickens. Campers will assist in daily chores of our animals, while learning about the benefits of humane livestock management.

Although summer camps will be a day-camp affair, we are also offering an optional Thursday night pizza-making camp-out and sleepover during the Art on the Farm and Farm to Table camps! This option is for campers who wish to carry the fun of daily farm life long into the night. Join us for cob oven baking, s’mores making, and a roaring fire. There is an additional cost for campers who choose to do the overnight, which covers a farm fresh dinner, and breakfast in the morning. Don’t forget your sleeping bag!

“I love that she is outside all day and has a new appreciation of where her food comes from. She LOVES to cook from this camp!” -camper parent
