At Farm & Wilderness, campers have the woods, lakes, and fields of central Vermont as their playground, classroom, and home. Our camps use more than 4,800 secluded acres.
Three camps and a teen program encircle Woodward Reservoir, a lake perfect for swimming, canoeing, and exploring. One camp and a teen program are based on the shore of beautiful Lake Ninevah. In a nearby woodland clearing, there is a wilderness camp, with a second wilderness program based on a scenic plateau in the area. In these amazing settings, campers and teens spend an unforgettable summer close to nature.
We live together in simple, wooden cabins and canvas structures tucked in the woods or along the lakes. There is no electricity or running water in the cabins; there are no movies, televisions, computers, or recorded music. Instead, we create our own entertainment, grow some of our own food, and build our cabins. In choosing to live simply, we build a participatory community that works, plays and sings together.
We explore by hiking, canoeing and rock climbing on trips, sometimes starting right from our back door. We also travel throughout New England, the Adirondacks, and Canada. Even our youngest day campers will experience an overnight trip. Living and playing in this beautiful place, teens and campers become grounded in the natural world.
