Farm & Wilderness Camps
At Farm & Wilderness, campers and teens have the woods, lakes, and fields of central Vermont as their playground, classroom, and home. Our camps use more than 4,800 secluded acres.
We live together in simple, wooden cabins and canvas structures tucked in the woods. 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, tend farm animals, 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 and the Adirondacks. 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.
