Here are some fast facts on camp precautions in pandemic times
As our Executive Director’s report made clear, we are moving as fast as we can and as slow as we must, in many areas. We are elbow-deep in doing.
Farm & Wilderness was featured in VTDigger this week! The article talks about how Vermont summer camps are preparing to welcome campers back in a few months, the safety measures being taken in the ongoing pandemic, and the importance of summer camp in the lives of youth and families during a difficult time.
As uncertainty and trauma unfolded in our country over the past two weeks, I cannot help but find balance and hope in the values that bind us as a community.
These values are woven into the fabric of every Farm & Wilderness program and camp 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.
Over 80 years ago, two educators with a dream of starting a school, founded Farm & Wilderness summer camps. 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.

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.

"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."
