Grown Up Farm Camp at East Hill Farm

Good for body, mind and soul!

Begin with a peaceful country setting not so far away, but very far from your everyday life, the hustle and bustle or the tedium of your regular schedule. Come for supper on Sunday and stay ‘til after breakfast on Friday; three home-cooked meals each day emphasizing local products (some of them from the Inn’s own working farm). Join with others in planned activities designed to accommodate all levels of physical ability and energy. Add accommodations that are perfect for groups of friends as well as couples or singles.

Less active pursuits more your cup of tea? The week includes a full program planned to appeal to varied interests; farm tours and demonstrations; book discussions; speakers; games; crafts…and plenty of time to sit by a wood fire and just relax.

    We just completed our 5 day Grown up Farm Camp and what a fun time it was. Danielle was new to the job of planning and executing all kinds of activities for us. She did an excellent job and her personality made everything more enjoyable.. We were busy each day all day long (if we chose to be) with activities like creating flowers out of veggies, making chocolate “mice”, a scavenger hunt, self facials with household items, hand painting wine glasses, guided walks around the grounds or through the woods, line dancing, card games, team games including Corn Hole, Jeopardy and Farmly Feud, plus an excellent “blind wine tasting”.. Field trips were offered as well as physical activities. Every season is different and the staff tries very hard not to repeat although some activities are worth repeating like making bread and some of the crafts, We also have professionally led discussions about a book, or an event or a place in the world that someone has visited, always very interesting. I just feel so fortunate to have found this event, twice a year.. It’s just like summer camp but for adults, all ages of adults with no kids there to worry about.. The ages this week were from 46 to 91 years. We had a few couples, a few groups of friends, a family of adults and many singles. The food is great, the accommodations are great, the staff is super, the farm is active and you should see the size of those pigs. Wow.!! You can’t beat the price. and you BYOB.
