"Encouraging a yearning for learning while working hand-in-hand on the land!"
Heritage Creek Farm Camp has, at its core, pristine land and wholesome values offering a working camp that encompasses the development of valuable life skills through cooperative work and creative play. Rooted in the simplicity of nature, Heritage Creek Farm Camp is focused on teaching children skills that nurture the seeds of social change and provide opportunities to discover the common threads of humanity. Reverence for life, care-taking of the environment, and creating a strong sense of community are fundamental elements at Heritage Creek Farm Camp.
Geared for children aged 3-12 years, all activities are guided by a caring staff that fosters cultural and social understanding- cultivating collaborative ways to achieve common goals. Activities that are hands-on, teach a variety of socially responsible and environmentally friendly lessons, illustrating how individual actions can make a difference in our world. Enthusiastic teenagers over 13 are encouraged to participate in our leadership program and volunteer as junior counselors.
Life skills are a combination of knowledge, values, and attitudes: sparking the enthusiasm to know, building the will-power to do, teaching the wisdom to work together, cultivating the inner strength to take action, and creating the freedom to be.
HERITAGE CREEK FARM CAMP
The farm camp experience completely exceeded our family's expectations. Our children woke up at 6 am each morning excited to go to camp. One of our children cried on the way home on Friday because she would miss camp so much. They are already planning to go next year.

Thank you so much for putting together a thoughtful, and enjoyable program. The communications prior and post camp were really nice for the parents. I love that I can find one experience that all three of my children, ages 5-12 can enjoy! We are appreciative of your offering to our family and the local community. ~Parent of Camper
