A generation or two ago almost everyone had the opportunity to experience farm life either daily by living on a farm or spending time on Grandma and Grandpa's or Auntie and Uncle's farm during the summer. At Flamig Farm's Summer Farm Adventure Camp we offer kids a unique and rare experience that introduces them to what a farm is all about.
Thank you for your interest in Flamig Farm Summer Adventure Camp. Kids return year after year to Flamig Farm Camp because we provide campers with a unique experience they remember for a lifetime. They experience what goes on at our farm, including:
- • Feeding and caring for animals
- • Organic gardening
- • Gathering eggs
- • Tractor/Horse drawn hay rides
- • Pony and Horse rides
- • Making a famous "EGGS" tie-dye shirt which is a special summer memento
- • Hikes to mountainside streams, fields and mulch/compost piles
We offer seven one-week sessions in June, July, and August for children age 5 through 14 from 9AM to 1PM Monday through Friday. Snack and lunch are provided.
This year our "Farm Hands" group will be made up of 7-13 year olds and "Little Farmers" group, 5 & 6 years old. This will give both groups the freedom to play and learn at their own level.
The Apprentice Program
For our older (13-14) Campers, we offer a special “Apprentice” program. We accept only 10 Apprentice Farmers in each of weeks, 2, 4, and 6 (see below), and these slots always fill quickly. These older campers work directly with Farmer Nevin and learn life skills such as:
- • Carpentry
- • Tractor and engine repair
- • Animal husbandry
- • Organic gardening
Our staff is truly remarkable. Many of them came to camp at age 5 and never left. Over the years we have developed a fun and caring groups of counselors, all of whom love the Farm. All of us are committed to providing your child with an exceptional summertime experience.
