Farm Camp

Farm Camp at the Burgess Farm

Learn to care for our farm animals, including sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, and more! Cultivate and harvest vegetables from our production field, and cook delicious meals using farm-fresh ingredients. Learn the ways of sustainable farming and farm-to-table agriculture. There’s always time at camp to do traditional camp activities, including swimming, climbing the climbing tower, playing games, and doing arts & crafts. At Farm Camp, you’ll learn important skills, make lasting friendships, and have fun!

Farm Camp is co-ed and open to campers ages 12-16. At Farm Camp, campers are in small groups of up to 12 campers, along with their 2 counselors. Campers will sleep in yurts or platform tents adjacent to the Burgess Farm, with bathrooms and showers nearby.
