The essence of Farm & Wilderness can be found in the Quaker values of simplicity, peacemaking, integrity, community, equity, and service.
These values are woven into the fabric of every Farm & Wilderness program and community, creating an environment where people develop a deep regard for one another and explore a style of life that is simple, rugged, and exciting.
Founded in 1939
Over 80 years ago, two educators with a dream of starting a school, founded Farm & Wilderness. Since then, F&W has offered tens of thousands of campers and staff an experiential education that has transformed the lives of many.

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.

Fun & Friends
We live together in simple, wooden cabins and canvas structures tucked in 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.

"My child said it feels like the hard shell he has grown to get through his time in school was broken away and his soft insides are there again. I see this in him, too. He is more open, available, appreciative, and kind."
