Farm & Wilderness Foundation, Plymouth:
Farm & Wilderness Foundation provides 6 residential summer camps and one day camp in Plymouth, Vermont. Situated on the edge of Coolidge National Forest, our traditional, activity-based camps are designed for boys and girls ages 4-17 (Day Camp for ages 4-10, Residential Camp for ages 9-17). We explore our surroundings through hiking, canoeing and rock climbing trips, sometimes starting right at our back door. We also travel throughout New England, the Adirondacks, and Canada. Even our youngest day campers will experience an overnight trip on the shore of the lake.
Farm & Wilderness is a non-profit educational organization which, since 1973, has carried forward the traditions and programs begun in 1939 by the F&W co-founders, Kenneth and Susan Howard Webb.
Why Choose a Farm & Wilderness Summer Camp?
- Encouraging Self-Exploration
F&W encourages physical, emotional and spiritual exploration within clearly set boundaries of safety. Campers are encouraged to find their own edge of challenge.

F&W emphasizes self within community. Each person has a valued role to play within the larger group. This community-building focus fosters a greater understanding of human interdependence and how to work and succeed within a group.
- Removed From Modern Life
F&W allows children a total removal from the bustle and demands of their busy, electronic lives. There is no recorded music, no television, and no electronic gadget of any kind at F&W.
- To create community that values long term stewardship of our environment

"At Timberlake, my son “grew about ten years in the 12 days he was at Farm and Wilderness. We are complete and total converts. He will definitely be back and I think it will be a touchstone for him in his life. I cannot put into words how wonderful it was for him.”
“F&W seems to have done a good job of reinventing itself within the continually shifting context of our larger society without sacrificing its identity.”
"Camp was an absolutely transformative experience for him — all we hoped and more. He LOVED every minute of it. It bolstered his confidence, encouraged him to communicate, and take responsibility for his relationships including his relationship with the natural world. He’ll be back.”
