Calling all Little Farmers!


Do you have a child ages 5-12 who has a passion for farming?
Our camps provide unique, hands-dirty opportunities for learning, growth, and fun! 

Each camp week is loaded with creative, enriching activities led by skilled environmental educators. "Farm Leaders", lead small, age-based groups of about 6-10 campers, tailoring the activities and focus to the interests, age, and needs of the campers in each group.

Lester's Farm Chalet emphasizes hands-on experience and exploration of our working farm.

Little Farmers are encouraged to touch, taste, smell, hear, observe, and ask questions. We focus on teaching respect for animals, plants, the earth and each other. Little Farmers will be able to collect eggs from chickens and quail, ride horses, care for animals, create nature-based crafts, learn to compost, plant seeds, harvest, bake, and MORE!
