“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.”

“Thanks for an AWESOME week and a one of a kind experience! This opportunity was truly unique and a privilege.”
