Flying Plow Farm Camp offers a traditional summer camp experience on a real working farm. Our mission is to educate 6 to 12 year-old children on where their food comes from and to expose them to the ecosystem of a family run, organic farm.
Campers will be hands-on, active participants in our farm community. We will explore the farm and learn about the natural world of soil, insects, plants, and weather. Every morning we will be getting our hands dirty by harvesting vegetables from the field and using them to prepare delicious, nutritious snacks. We will investigate the amazing and delicious world of vegetables!
Through hands-on learning and exploration, the children will develop a greater understanding of food production. Their appreciation of local agriculture will grow, and they will be inspired to live an active, healthy lifestyle.
Most importantly, they will have fun!
