Camp Fitch Farm Focus

Farming Focus

Grow both food and friendships through the Farm Focus experience!

For kids who love connecting with both plants and animals, the Farm Focus experience is an excellent way to specialize their Camp Fitch adventure. Campers will learn about and help care for a fleet of heritage-breed livestock, including goats, rabbits, pigs, chickens, and turkeys. They’ll also learn what it takes to maintain a beautiful produce garden and help harvest heirloom crops like sweet peas, strawberries, and tomatoes. Other activities include spinning wool into yarn to make bracelets, collecting farm-fresh eggs, taking goats for walks around camp, and taste-testing the fruits and veggies they’ll help grow.

Learning about farming is a fantastic way for kids to connect the soil below their feet with the food they eat everyday. Children who have the opportunity to see where good food comes from are more likely to make healthier choices later on in life. Campers will also build their sense of responsibility towards the world around them through using regenerative techniques to care for plants and animals, and their sense of community through working alongside their peers. Our staff have real-world experience working on livestock and produce farms and can happily convert their knowledge into tasks that will sow the seeds of empathy and capability in their students.

Sessions will be limited to 16 campers (ages 8 to 15) per week. All Farm Focus campers will spend half of their day at the farm while still getting to enjoy traditional Flagship activities throughout the rest of their stay. If your child wants to experience the joy of raising baby rabbits and chicks while still having the opportunity to try their hand at archery, then this is the focus
experience for them!
