Summer Camp 2019

Heartland’s popular Summer Camp is back for 2019 and registration is now open! Starting June 17th, Heartland Farm Sanctuary is offering 10 week-long sessions of our summer day camp for children ages 8-13. Please note that your child must turn 8 by June 17th to attend camp at our sanctuary. If your child is attending camp this summer, please remember to fill out our online waiver! We have some exciting camp activities planned this summer, including:

– Learning all about the fascinating world of farm animals! How they think, feel and communicate with each other!

– Learning about how to care for rescued animals to keep them healthy and happy!

– Enjoying our beautiful pasture, grounds, and gardens. Take guided nature hikes, plant and harvest fruits and vegetables, and best of all, hang out with our animals each day!

– Creating in our Maker’s Studio— Make works of art with paint and clay, create upcycled art with found objects and nature, make jewelry, and build with wood.

– Playing, learning, and creating in a safe place where the focus is compassion and kindness for all!

*For those of you who will be registering for multiple weeks of camp, please know that Summer Camp will consist of a variety of activities and we’ll be incorporating different themes throughout the summer!
