As Farm and Wilderness campers, teens build a strong sense of community and efficacy. During participants 9 days on the farm, they live in primitive Hollow Oak, an inclusive and gender-neutral communal space. Midway through the session, campers take a three-day backpacking expedition to Black Mountain, a 10-mile trek round trip. While hiking, campers work toward team-building and achieving both personal and group goals. Campers in this program care for our farm animals and choose from a variety of activities each day. Activities are unique in each session and may include swimming, archery, high ropes, sports, and arts & crafts.
Please be sure to register for the appropriate session for your family: either “Farm & Wilderness – Paying in Full” or “Farm & Wilderness – Requesting Financial Aid”.
