Farm and Wilderness
Nov. 8th, 2013
At Farm and Wilderness camps in Vermont they focus on creating a fun and beneficial community experience for their campers. They do that though continued emphasis on the natural world and positive and peaceful interactions with the environment. Campers help with the clean up of meals by washing the dishes and they help to build some of the structures including some of the cabins on site. Camp is beautiful, nestled in the vermont mountains and remnants of an atmosphere of collaboration and community could be felt even on the freezing cold november day that we visited. Buildings had camper and staff art projects prominently displayed, and the communal spaces like the garden, the dinning hall and the waterfront all spoke of the rustic, simple yet true fun that campers and staff live out every summer.
