Junior Farmer Camp, is designed to help kids discover for themselves by stepping into a farmer’s shoes for a week.
Junior Farmer Camp is as hands-on as it gets. Campers will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the farm’s cows, horses, chickens, and sheep while learning the work that goes into the food we eat. In addition to daily farm chores and activities, we will explore a different farming topics like dairy, gardening, tractors, and draft animals. Other fun camp activities include:
Campers help with animal chores for the sheep, goats, chickens, and heifers, take tractor-drawn wagon rides, play games, and do gardening, crafts, and cooking. We will take advantage of the adjacent National Historical Park for hiking and learn about Vermont’s natural history. We can’t wait to see you at Junior Farmer Camp!
Our response to COVID-19 will continue to be updated. Campers and parents will receive prior notice of all other safety precautions and processes implemented at the Farm & Museum.
We understand that everyone’s schedule is a little different and picking up your camper(s) can be a challenge at times. We’re happy to offer an aftercare option for families who are not able to make it to the 4:00 pm pick up time.
Aftercare runs from 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm, Monday through Friday. Aftercare is only available for full-day camps (Junior Farmer Camp & Farm Discovery Camp). You may register your camper(s) for this option on a weekly basis for $60 per camper per week. Your payment holds you spot in aftercare, and you can pay through our website after completing the camp forms.
We have a minimum attendance requirement to be able to provide this service. We will inform you 30 days prior to your camper’s session if aftercare is unavailable. We will process a refund at that time.
Aftercare is a supervised time but not a structured activity time. Campers are encouraged to bring a book or other activity for this time.
