give your children the gift of an idyllic summer


Summer Farm Camp at Red Gate Farm is a full-immersion, unforgettable experience on a real farm. Our gardens, barns and forest are brimming with good things to do and good things to eat! Campers spend their days in nature - no screen time here! - with experienced and enthusiastic counselors: hiking, farming, playing, creating, connecting, dreaming and finding a life-long love for exploring the great outdoors and appreciating life on a farm. Small groups engage in hands-on experiences and learn real skills while having loads of fun.

We will… plant and harvest in the garden, cook delicious meals together, mend fences for sneaky sheep and goats, feed and train our pair of oxen, navigate through the forest and cool off in the stream, build bonfires, and roast marshmallows as we learn to name the constellations in the night sky. There’s lots more but we like surprises, don’t you? Each day of Farm Camp brings new things to experience in the gardens, barns and forest - it’s an adventure you’ll never forget!
