ANIMALS MAKE PEOPLE BETTER HUMANS! The Animal Human Connection...We recognize this daily with our campers. They LOVE spending time on the farm getting hands on experience with our farm animals, learning the responsibilities of animal caretaking and enjoying tending to them.
BEING KIND IS COOL! There is such a wonderful connection between all campers, no matter their age, nationality or gender because being kind is cool!
NATURE IS HEALING! Experience how great you feel while out in nature and the outdoors. Every day we remind our campers about the important topic of taking care of our planet.
FOOD IS MEDICINE! Farm-to-Table… these are fundamentally important principles that we share with our campers. Each week campers will harvest from our organic garden or visit local farm stands to create farm-to-table inspired, nutritious & tasty recipes! THIS IS WHAT CREATES THE UNIQUE ART FARM EXPERIENCE! Our trained staff see each child for their true individuality... We create an experience for each child to flourish! Small groups and tailored schedules that meet the desires of each camper are offered daily. Lunch is included daily for Art Farm campers. Our belief is that food is medicine. We aim to serve nutritious and kid-friendly options.
