Our Mission and Facilities
The farm strives to provide your child with a vacation from the everyday stresses. Fun is the priority and learning just happens. We allow campers to choose the activities they enjoy. The most important thing is creating a noncompetitive environment where children of all ages play together and thrive. This is an environment that fosters creativity, self understanding, life-long friendships, and empathy for others.
Across the 240 acres of farm land the fun and exploration is endless. Mornings are spent at the farm exploring the animal barns, horse rides, sports areas, playgrounds, craft areas and more. Campers spend the afternoon in the beautiful natural setting at Prince Lake. The lake includes the beach, swimming areas for all levels, paddle boats, canoes and changing houses.
A Day at Camp
Campers arrive by 9:30am and meet in the picnic shelter for assembly. Assembly includes playing games, singing songs, taking attendance and finding out what activities are planned for the day.
Activities change from day to day, but most days include: Crafts, Feeding the animals, Horseback riding, Frog catching, Sports activities, Milking a cow & Making Butter, Teaching a calf to lead, Nature hikes, Campfire cooking, Tie dye (every Wednesday) and never ending games of octoball and lightening.
Lunch is 11: 45 - 12:35 daily (remember to bring a lunch, we provide lemonade and water)
12:35 - 12:45, campers can choose to walk to the lake or ride the hay wagon, all campers must go to the lake with staff
Lake Time - campers are tested on their first day to determine swim level. Campers can also enjoy the following while at the lake: Swimming, Boating, Playing on the beach, Frog and Turtle Catching, Relaxing and Octoball.
At 2:45 we say goodbye to the lake and head back to the farm for an afternoon snack and pack up to go home at 3:30pm.
