“This camp was fantastic. My child enjoyed every activity provided, especially all the “behind-the-scenes” tours (robotic milk machine, animals, hayride and playing in the hay, etc.). Also loved all the crafts. Counselors were great, too.” “I didn’t think Farm Camp 2 could ever top Farm Camp 1 (they LOVED it), but it did. They couldn’t have been more excited to wake up and go to camp everyday. Still their favorite camp experience ever! Can’t wait for Farm Fun 3.”

“My 7.5 year absolutely loved this camp! He came home everyday excited about everything he learned and did and looked forward to the next day. He’s already asked to go again next year and I will be sending him and my now 4-year-old as well. Thrilled to have something so fun and educational right in my backyard!”
