Every year we offer a handful of special overnight stays at the farm. This 3-day, 2-night program allows students and teachers to experience the beauty and magic of our farm day and night. This transformative experience allows the class to connect with the farm, the natural world, and each other, and to develop impressions and understanding that will last a lifetime.
Overnight Stays include:
• Meals made with our farm fresh produce.
• A pre-trip visit by our educators come to prepare the class for the adventure.
• Full support from our staff, day and night
• Special curriculum can be designed to meet the needs of your class. • All the activities of our Day Trip plus much more.
Classes will spend time on our farm not only as visitors, but as members of the community. We will prepare meals, do daily chores, harvest fruits and veggies for the kitchen, go hiking on the trail system at White Oak, explore the streams and ponds, teach classes that explore the concepts around the farm, nighttime campfires, and nighttime stories, all while playing games, having fun, and taking every moment possible to soak in the experience.
This is our inaugural year for overnight stays, but we had planned for them since the beginning of our educational programming. Nothing has a bigger impact on young people (or even adults) than waking up in a new place. The experience becomes meaningful, because it is not just a trip, but an enriching part of their lives. We have been doing summer camps since 2002 and see this happen every year to the campers.
*We will do our best to accommodate all requests for overnight stays as our resources allow.
