Red Spruce Grove Girls and gender non-binary 11-14

Strong hands, strong hearts

confidence in self and community Life in the Wild

Immersed in a wilderness community, campers distill daily life to the essentials. While cooking over an open fire, they create tasty meals, build shelters, learn ax and knife safety, archery and other wilderness-living skills.

Amid the knot tying and blueberry picking, campers learn resilience and self-reliance. They emerge from the experience stronger, more confident, aware and capable.

Red Spruce Grove Activities

Campers, who start off together at Indian Brook, hike to their site on a wilderness plateau. After their time living closely to the land in a small, supportive community, they return excited and eager to share their experiences and wilderness craft with other camps.

Gender at Farm & Wilderness

Farm & Wilderness strives to empower young people to understand and navigate the social pressures they encounter in their lives, pressures that may be related to their gender identity. At Farm & Wilderness, we offer community members the opportunity to choose a camp environment that best supports their gender identity.  To this end, all programs educate about gender during the summer to provide a safe space for campers to share their thoughts on and experiences with gender, and to become familiar with others’ experiences.
