Little Brook Farm Camp started as a way to share our animals and the farm experience with children.
Farm owner Kristen Whittle is the camp director and is also a DESE certified educator and registered nurse. Children at camp will have the opportunity to learn about livestock and sustainable agriculture in a hands-on program. Animals include sheep, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys, turkeys and chickens.
How it works
Campers start each day by helping with morning chores such as collecting eggs and milking the goats. Working with the animals is all hands-on. In warm weather, most afternoons we set up the slip-and-slide! Camp is open to kids ages 6–12 years. The camp day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

All 5-day camp sessions are $300 per camper, per week. Reservations are $50 per camper, per week. Reserve early as space is limited! A non-refundable $50 reservation OR full payment is required to save your place at camp. You can choose to pay your reservation or the full camp fee online or by check. If you register for a week that becomes full before your reservation reaches us, your deposit can be applied to another week (contact us if this doesn’t work for you, and in this case we can refund your deposit). If a particular camp week is full, you can add your name to the camp waiting list (click the tab above) in case of last minute cancellations. Please contact us if you have questions.
