Humane Education

Through Heartland’s Humane Education camps, field trips and enrichment clubs, participants of all ages learn to foster compassion and respect for all living beings and see farm animals through a compassionate lens. By learning how we provides sanctuary, enrichment and high-quality care to our rescued residents, kids develop skills to be compassionate, problem-solving members of their own communities..

Our Humane Education Programs

With the information collected from surveys and guidance from the CDC, we have made the following changes to our summer programs in regards to Covid-19 and keeping our entire community healthy:

  • We have reduced our camp hours to mornings only. Our new camp hours are 8:30 am-12:00 pm. 
  • We have added new afternoon clubs for children 5-11 years old that offer shorter program times (1-3 pm).
  • We are hiring additional staff so that group sizes are no larger than five (5) campers per counselor.
  • Please note that Heartland Farm Sanctuary will continue to follow all state and local orders. We will update our policies in accordance with any new information that we receive. You can also view the CDC Website Camp Guidelines here.

Sanctuary Sundays (New!)

Offered on Sundays during the month of May from 1-2:45 pm, Sanctuary Sundays are visits to the sanctuary led by our Humane Educators and designed for small groups and families with younger children. These specialized tours include activities and animal introductions geared for younger children. Join us for a relaxing, fun visit to our sanctuary, meet some of our animals, and participate in some play time at the barn! Group numbers will be limited to six people per group and there are parts of the tour that will require adults to keep children by the hand. The fee per family/group is $75.
