Woodvale Farm Day Camp

An Old-Fashioned Farm Experience
Find out how much fun it can be to work on a farm!  Scenic Woodvale Farm is surrounded by rocky pastures, a country barn, lush gardens, and an historic cemetery. This original 19th century farm is home to all kinds of animals like sheep, ducks, chickens, pigs, rabbits, cows, and goats. There’s so much for you to experience at Woodvale Farm.  Help feed the animals, learn about humane animal care, plant seeds, collect eggs, harvest the best fresh vegetables you’ve ever tasted, and learn to make recipes like bread from the very corn that you grind into meal.  There will also be hiking, swimming, songs, crafts, folklore, and a whole lot of fun down on the farm.  Woodvale Farm Day Camp was featured on the Food Network because of its garden to table cooking.   $235.00 ($188.00 for Week 2)
