Heritage Creek Farm Camp is a small scale vegetable farm located in Mount Joy, PA. It is also an educational initiative that encourages a healthy lifestyle, models socially responsible ways to positively impact today's society, and teaches environmental stewardship. Inspired by the wonders of nature and the joys of discovery, our programs offers opportunities for outdoor play and exploration. Our programs spark conversation and kindle inner growth. We encourage a life long "yearning for learning" and teach a simplistic and cooperative way of living.

Heritage Creek is a community of learners that believe that education is meant to be a life long journey, filled with experiences, that provide meaningful opportunities for growth and personal development. Education is at the heart of all of our programs. "Always learning....learning all ways!"
Our Programs promote: Social awareness and a sense of community, self-sufficiency and sustainability, healthy and simplistic lifestyle, living in harmony with nature, sound practices for the responsible use of the environment and its resources, organic gardening and conservation, sustainable food production, inner growth and reflection, handcrafted trades and techniques from natural items, and art, music and drama.
Heritage Creek is an Outdoor Eco-Classroom that is designed for children to explore, observe, and discover nature. Farming and building projects are hands-on; designed to enhance elementary educational curriculum. Our garden areas are seamlessly blended with the surrounding landscape to provide a diverse habitat for nature- domestic and wild.
Children plant the seeds in the greenhouse, share the harvest, and develop an understanding for plants and animals; learning to respect and protect our natural resources. They acquire an appreciation for food origin, learn about healthy dietary habits and are inspired as they work hand-in-hand on the land! Friends growing....growing friends!
