Farm Camp Kids

 

Due to the declining health of the landowner of Turkey Hill Farm, Farm Camp's future access to the site is no longer guaranteed. Therefore, Farm Camp has suddenly needed to make the tough decision not to run camp this summer.

 

No one is sadder than we are. We have had a wonderful 13 years with Farm Camp.

 

Thank you, Farm Camp Kids!
