For ages 7-10 or entering grades 2-5

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a farmer?

Junior Farmer Camp, is designed to help kids discover for themselves by stepping into a farmer’s shoes for a week.

Our Junior Farmer Camp follows the CDC and state government guidelines to ensure the safety of our campers and counselors. The group sizes for each session will continue to be small, consisting of 10-15 campers and 2-3 counselors and will be split into small groups following CDC guidelines for social distancing.

Our response to COVID-19 will continue to be updated as more information and state government guidelines becomes available. In 2021 all campers and counselors will be required to wear a mask throughout the day and hand washing or sanitizer stations will be available around the site. Camper and parents will receive prior notice of all other safety precautions and processes implemented at the Farm & Museum. 

The majority of our camp activities will be held outside where campers can maintain social distance. 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!

For ages 7-10 or entering grades 2-5.
