As Farm and Wilderness campers, teens build a strong sense of community and efficacy. During their 9 days on the farm, campers 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.
Farm & Wilderness campers will enjoy sleeping under the stars in the fresh air.
- Campers will enjoy sleeping with the fresh breeze of Hidden Villa night air.
- Each overnight camp will be spread out throughout the farm and will have its own private sleeping area.
- All pods are completely gender-inclusive! We welcome people of all genders to any pod.
- All campers will be provided a camp mattress that is cleaned and disinfected before and after each session.
