Our Overnight Earth Stewards Camp for ages 12 to 16 gives the camper the opportunity to get unplugged from a high-tech world and reconnect to nature. They experience the farm from the viewpoint of a junior apprentice and work alongside our professional staff and participate in the daily rhythms of the farm. They also enjoy traditional camp activities and build strong bonds and lasting friendships between fellow campers and counselors. Earth Stewards share a campsite in a shady glen on the farm. Our camp sessions are divided into two week or four week sessions.
A spring-fed pond serves as our swim facility. It is state-inspected and supervised by trained lifeguards. The Dining Hall serves child-friendly meals prepared from scratch using Biodynamic® and organic ingredients. Campers and staff eat together family-style, fostering the community-building spirit of the camp. Meals are mostly vegetarian and use farm-fresh eggs, and fruits and vegetables from our gardens and from other farms in the area. Our dining hall staff can accommodate many dietary health restrictions including gluten and nut free.
Our Summer Camp staff consists of six full-time, year-round personnel and twenty summer counselors and a RN. We maintain a 3:1 camper to adult ratio. The program is monitored and licensed by the NY State Department of Health.
