The Country Experience at Amstutz Family Farm

Untitled design - 2023-02-06T135046.812

SUMMER CAMP on the farm is a week-long sleepaway experience for 7-17 year-olds, full of meaningful fun where children get in touch with the substance of their character and develop a greater sense of the world.

We use hands-on experiences and real-world tools to build an appreciation for the value of time and effort, a respect for life and nature, and development of important life skills including communication, responsibility, decision-making, teamwork, and respect for self and others.

The daily flow of camp is determined by the natural needs of the farm – animals require care, vegetables are ready to be harvested, structures need repair. Campers take on a meaningful, hands-on role as they work and play side by side with adults, each with value in the community and an opportunity to discover new interests and passions.

Our goal, at the end of a week of camp, is for your child to move a step closer to becoming themselves, confident, caring, curious, compassionate young people.

Ages: 7-17 years
Location: 115 Wind Mill Road – Elizabeth, IL
