A 700-acre Demeter certified 650A Biodynamic farm in central Columbia County, NY

House Camp (8-13)

Situated at Hawthorne Valley Farm, we offer many hands-on farm experiences for children, creating memories that last a lifetime!

6-Day Sessions for Ages 8 & 9 (Full — waiting list available) and Ages 10 & 11

A good first time experience for children, we provide a nurturing environment for the campers in a home like atmosphere to help the children feel safe and secure. The children feed animals, clean the barn, collect eggs, garden, ride horses, walk the local hills, enjoy arts and crafts, singing, games, swimming and family style vegetarian meals. This will be a hands-on farm experience that is suitable for younger and first time campers.

13-Day Session for Ages 10 & 11

A wholesome, enjoyable program of activities well-suited to the 10 to 11 year old child who is ready for some challenges. Children feed the animals, clean the barn, collect eggs, garden, ride horses, swim and enjoy arts and crafts, games, singing, and eat delicious organic vegetarian meals. Hikes at local parks, cookouts and campfires round out the two weeks. A homelike atmosphere allows children to feel comfortable and secure.

14-Day Session for Ages 11 thru 13

This program adds a few more exciting activities well-suited to the 11 thru 13 year old camper. Children feed the animals, clean the barn, collect eggs, garden, ride horses, swim and enjoy arts and crafts, games, archery, singing and delicious organic vegetarian meals and snacks. Our off campus hikes to state parks and local ponds are long and a little challenging. At the top of the mountains or edge of the streams, the campers embrace the views or the sparkle of the waterfalls and realize it was well worth the trip while they rest and eat their lunches. The campers show us their skills during Olympic/Carnival Day and Talent Night. Their creative side is found as they carve wooden boats to sail during our famous Creek Boat Race. Cookouts and campfires round out the two weeks. A homelike atmosphere allows children to feel comfortable and secure.

Camper readiness will be determined in consultation with and is subject to the approval of the camp director. Please call if you have questions. Each session is limited to 28 campers.
