Animal Explorers Farm Camp

The Red Barn Farm offers an exceptional program through our Animal Explorers summer youth camp for children 5 -12 years old, meticulously designed for young animal enthusiasts eager to delve into the fascinating world of animals. This camp provides an immersive experience with a variety of rescued animals, including rabbits, emus, chickens, mini horses, mini donkeys, cows, alpacas, and goats. Through hands-on activities and direct engagement with the animals, campers not only expand their knowledge but also take part in day-to-day care tasks. This experiential learning approach cultivates a robust understanding of animal husbandry while promoting teamwork and camaraderie among peers. By the end of the camp session, participants are well-prepared to lead their parents on an informative farm tour demonstrating everything they have learned. This transformative journey not only bolsters self-confidence but also cultivates essential leadership skills in our campers.
