Overnight Farm Camp
The Overnight Farm Camps seek to build reverence for life and community awareness through living, playing and working together on an active biodynamic farm. Children feed the animals, clean the barn, collect chicken eggs, garden, horseback ride, hike, learn nature based arts and crafts, sing, and swim.
A spring-fed pond serves as our swim facility. It is state-inspected and supervised by trained lifeguards.The Dining Hall serves meals prepared from scratch using biodynamic and organic ingredients. Campers and staff eat together family-style, fostering the community-building spirit of the camp. Meals are vegetarian and use farm-fresh eggs and fruits and vegetables from our gardens and from other farms in the area.
Our staff consists of six full-time, year-round personnel and eighteen summer counselors. We maintain a 3:1 camper to adult ratio. The program is monitored and licensed by the NY State Department of Health.
