Our Summer 2016 Day Camp was a great success! Registration for 2017 is now online!  Early Bird discounts, save $20,  through January 31! 

Our Mission is to offer campers opportunities for:

  • A summer of joy, wonder, and fun on the farm!
  • Growth in confidence, communication, and team work skills through a nurturing community, led by inspiring and caring staff.
  • Development of creativity and problem solving skills through many fun, engaging, and challenging activities.
  • Finding meaning through spiritual growth.

MF Boy ArcherActivities are designed with our mission in mind, and may include archery, arts and crafts, board and field games, camp songs, creek stomping, farm animal care, fort building, gardening, horseback riding, nature journal, nature study, kayaking (new!) puppetry, SEAN: science, engineering,  art, and math, skits, River of Words art contest and more!  Actives will vary daily; and offerings may vary from session to session based on camper interest. All campers will have the opportunity to spend one morning with the horses, learning about how to care for them and of course a riding lesson in the arena! Additional Beginning Group Riding Lessons are available in the mornings and evening for an additional fee.  Please see  the“Activities” tab for more information on our programs, or you may down load our 2017 Program Guide.

Our day camp is for children entering Grades K-5 in the Fall of 2016; Leader in Training for Campers entering grades 6 through 8 (Session A and C only); Counselor In Training: a volunteer opportunity for those entering grade 11 thru 12 and at least 16 years of  age.   Children must be at least five years old as of the first day of the session they attend.  This is in compliance with a state regulation, so unfortunately there are no exceptions!

“I have a conviction that a few weeks spent in a well-organized summer camp may  be of more value educationally than a whole year of formal school work.”  Charles Eliot, former president of Harvard University, in his 1922 treatise on education.
