Farm Camp offers a traditional summer camp experience on a real working farm. We work to create a fun and safe environment that encourages independence while nurturing lasting friendships. We are located on 500 lush acres of redwood trees, creeks, lakes, and rolling coastal foothills, 1.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. We are nestled in beautiful Sonoma County located in Northern California, providing many opportunities to explore and appreciate the land. 

Campers and counselors play an integral role in caring for the animals and garden to help provide food for the camp, therefore bringing the freshest ingredients from the farm to the kitchen and ultimately, the table. We have an array of feathered and fuzzy creatures to care for on the farm including chickens, cows, horses, donkeys, sheep, goats, pigs, puppies and kittens. Many of which will be babies that you will help raise, feed and provide care for over the duration of summer. 

Since 1952, we have taught respect and love of nature. We minimize the impact we have on the earth, practicing and teaching environmental sustainability. Our program focuses on promoting a positive self-image, encouraging friendships and community, and practicing a healthy lifestyle.

We are looking for staff members with an interest in sustainable agriculture, Farm, and animal care or if you simply have a desire to work with children, educating the next generation in one of the most beautiful settings on earth! We also have a need for certified LIFEGUARDS!
