​​​​HERITAGE CREEK FARM CAMP 

                         

So many reasons to enjoy the seasons at Heritage Creek Farm Camp! 

These overnight camps are occasionally offered to campers ages 9-12.  Overnight camps offer an opportunity for campers to extend their day at camp and experience farm life more fully.  We do not have any overnight camps offered during the 2017 summer camp season but hope to bring this fun activity back in the future.

Camp Motto:  Dirty hands and knees, meadows, woods, and stream.  Earth, water, air, and sun, food and friendship, outdoor fun.  Games, nature, music, art, work and play, hands and heart.  Plant, harvest, cook and bake, meals and friendships we do make.  Steward of water, creatures, and land, crafting, and building, hand-in-hand.  Wonder, reverence, and respect, all the virtues we expect.  Value, love, and encourage others, we are one, sisters, and brothers.  Harmony, peace, joy, and unity, weave the tapestry of community.
