A week on the farm is worth a month in the city. Fulper Family Farmstead’s unique summer camp program is the epitome of this statement. Join their farm family for the week and make memories that last a lifetime! For the last 10 years, the Fulpers have opened their barn doors to children for the ultimate fun-on-the-farm experience. They strive to deliver an unforgettable, rewarding, and refreshing hands-on experience.
Participants will soak up the fresh farm air, learn where milk and dairy products come from, witness daily farm chores, and care for their own calf; all while having a blast! In addition, the campers will cool off on the ultimate slip ‘n’ slide and milking parlor water games as well as refuel with farm fresh dairy and homemade farmstead snacks.
Additional activities include hayrides, the chance to watch a cow give birth, scavenger hunts, relay races, dairy jeopardy, obstacle course, making ice cream, milking a cow, making homemade milk paint for crafts, meeting the dairy princess, and much more!
This day camp program includes farm life, fresh air, exercise, creativity, collaboration and teamwork. Each camp participant picks out their very own calf to take care of for the week. They are in charge of naming their calf and learning how to wash, clip, and properly handle them. Families are invited to the farm on the last day to watch each camper present their calf in the show.
