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.

Camp registration

All 5-day camp sessions are $350 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.

  3. If you’re already registered, pay any remaining balance (online or by check)

Health forms

All campers must fill out and bring state-required health and immunization record forms. These may be mailed, e-mailed or brought with you on the first day of camp. You may be able to get a copy of your child’s physical exam/health form and immunizations from their school nurse before the end of the school year. Visit the health forms tab above to download them.

This camp must comply with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and be licensed by the local board of health.
