Acres of gardens are planted each spring and tended by campers during the summer. We raise dairy cows, pigs, sheep, goats, alpacas, chickens, and ducks. Our camp kitchens use our organic, fresh produce throughout the growing season.

We live together in simple, wooden cabins and canvas structures tucked into the woods or along the lakes. There is no electricity in the cabins, no movies, televisions, computers, or recorded music. Instead, we create our own entertainment, grow some of our own food, and build our own cabins. In choosing to live simply, we build a participatory community that works, plays, and sings together.

At F&W, we design and provide age-appropriate curricula that: nurtures a camper’s sense of self and community identity; promotes each child’s comfort in socializing with people of varied backgrounds; fosters critical thought about bias, and cultivates a child’s ability to stand up in the face of bias.

At Farm & Wilderness, the woods, lakes, and fields of central Vermont are our playground, classroom, and home. Our Vermont Summer Camps use more than 4,800 secluded acres. In these amazing settings, campers and teens spend an unforgettable summer close to nature.
