Kids & Animals: Better Together

Heartland Farm Sanctuary will offer 11 week-long sessions of day camp in 2017 for kids ages 8-13. Each week includes up close and personal interaction with our friendly farm animals, barn chores, and activities centered around building our 3 C’s: Character, Confidence and Compassion. This year, in addition to time spent up close and personal with our friendly rescued animals, doing animal care chores, and other barn-based activities, we’ll also get closer to the land around us. We’ll explore the beautiful forests, prairies, and pastures teeming with life outside the barn!  *CAMP REGISTRATION IS NOW FULL. To get on our waiting list, please email

Camp will run from 9 AM – 3:30 PM Monday through Friday (there will be no camp on Tuesday, July 4th) with options for early drop-off and late pick-up. Early drop-off is available at 8 AM. Late pick-up is available at 4 PM or 5 PM. Each extension (early drop off or late pick up) is $5 per child.

We are offering two special Animal Ambassador themed weeks this year. Animal Ambassadors allows campers to learn how to help all types of animals through education and advocacy. Campers will learn useful and effective methods to help animals both in their community and around the world, and will do engaging projects that put those methods into action.

Register before May 1st and pay $225 per week, register after May 1st and pay $250 per week. The cost of camp includes a Summer Camp t-shirt! *CAMP REGISTRATION IS NOW FULL. To get on our waiting list, please email
