Children’s Summer Camps in Chatham County, NC

Young Farmers connects children to the wonder and beauty of the farm through food, nutrition, farming, and participation in traditional crafts.

Young farmers will join us for a week of learning about sustainable agriculture by milking cows, feeding pigs, collecting eggs, working with goats, feeding poultry, caring for babies, working in the garden and more.

Young farmers will learn how to make cheese, yogurt, butter and ice cream as well as other nutritional food that come straight from the farm. Farmers will also learn how to make traditional crafts, play with science and solve problems.

Notice: April 24th Homeschooling Farm Day will be rescheduled due to heavy rain and possible flooding. Please see below for new dates. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Homeschooling Farm Days will be May 9 and May 19 from 8:30am – 2:30pm.

The Farm Day is filled with learning about and participating in life on a farm, creating new friendships, both furry and human alike, and cultivating a love for the outdoors and organic living. We typically start each day with morning farm chores, feeding the animals, collecting eggs, and milking cows. Afternoon lunches are either in the wood, under a tree, or inside the barn next to the fans. Campers will create a farm associated traditional craft. Gardening and farm-to-table treats are a must while working and living on a farm, and we fully intend on eating what we create!
