  1. my granddaughter is 12 but very good with horses etc. She has been at your camp for many years. She is interested in volunteering for a week in the summer. Should she attend the job fair?

      HI Judy,
      Sorry for the delayed response on this as we had our hands a bit full this week. We do offer volunteer opportunities here at the farm however they are generally reserved for ages 14+ except in exceptional circumstances. We do offer our new leaders in training program as one of our new camp options for young people who are interested in being involved here at the farm but have outgrown some of our regular camp programming. We do have this option listed under the “camps” tab however if you would like to speak to someone directly please don’t hesitate to reach out at 519 888 6503 or
