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.
