Our biodynamic farm is the lifeline of the camp and the kitchen is its heart. In the summer months, we never stop beating – making 3 meals and two snacks a day from scratch. We are a small but motivated team churning out homemade granola, scratch bread, breaking down our chickens raised on our pastures, and churning out pizza after pizza from our cob oven.

We are innovators and artists. We accept and we are grateful for what we can do in this moment, but we know that we can always improve.
We are on time, playful, and hardworking, so that at the end of the day we will be totally free for a swim in the lake, a scamper in the woods, or a game of hardcore meadow soccer. Not sure what meadow soccer is? Oh, it’s a multi-age free-for-all like you’ve never seen before. No cleats required.
