Family camp is held in August for one week at the end of the camp season. Families arrive on Monday and leave the following Sunday.

  • Family camp schedule is similar to children’s camp: including animal chores, communal meals, silent meeting, morning activities by age-group, swimming, a variety of intergenerational activities in the afternoon, game time, nightly workshops and discussions, story time, singing, and free-time. Activities vary from day to day, but include wood shop, ceramics, other crafts, theater improv, hikes, farm or construction projects and more.

  • Special activities may include cookouts, overnights, campfire, and tours of the sap house. Our planning is flexible and activities sometimes arise from family camper requests.
  • Families have the opportunity to participate in activities as a unit and/or individually. Age-specific activities are offered in the morning to allow campers the chance to interact with their own age group. Afternoon activities allow all ages to participate in whatever they choose.

  • Families can arrange to have a sleep-out under the stars on our beautiful, 215-acre farm.
  • Housing is by family. Some private sleeping quarters are available, or you may opt to bring your own tent or share a larger space with another family. Those who share housing or bring their own tent will be offered a partial refund on tuition.
  • Breakfasts are prepared by a rotating team of counselors and family campers. Lunch and dinner are prepared by our cook. Since we care a lot about our food we use as much from the farm as possible, and in August there’s plenty! We can accommodate most eating restrictions and try to make our meals as kid-friendly as possible, without compromising nutrition or deliciousness.

JOURNEY'S END FARM CAMP SCHOLARSHIP FUND


“Our daughter attended Journey’s End over 20 years ago, and we still recall the deep impression it made in her development. She now lives in an earth-friendly community where she can live out her passion for respecting the earth and all the people on it. I know this attitude was fostered by her early life experiences such as Journey’s End.”
- Camp Parent

"I had the best time ever at Journey's End Farm Camp"
