For our 2024/25 session dates and fees, click here. Beginning September 2024, we will offer 2, 3 and 5 day enrollment options as well as options for attending 3 or 4 hours each day. Please be aware that the only pick up times offered are 3:30 or 4:30 (except in an emergency!). Because campers are fully immersed in our farm and forest experience, we keep pick-up interruptions to a minimum.

 

Children will also explore our 34-acre farm, forest, meadows and amazing creeks as well as our studio spaces, microgreen production area and delightful Solo Stove spots for building fires, roasting marshmallows and hotdogs and brewing some delicious hot chocolate on those chilly afternoons!

 

Children in our Forest Adventures camps will have time to feed the donkeys and goats, gather eggs from the chickens, cook up a little snack, explore art & maker activities and hike our endless forest paths, explore our new silvopastures and food forests. We will read stories and learn about all of the unique plants and critters on Belle Vie Farm and its acres of forests.
