2023 NOMAD Farms Fall Family Camp

Now Accepting Registrations for Fall Family Camp!

Date: October 13-14, 2023

Rain Date (Backup Plan): October 27-28, 2023

Initially, we thought we would offer TWO weekends of Fall Family Camp this first year, but we bit off more than we could chew!  It will be more fun to be all together anyway, and we'll look at expanding in '24!

This fall we will kick-off our first ever Farm Camp Family weekend! This is your invitation to NOMAD Farms for a wildly enriching, unifying time with your own family/ friend group in the company of others who have the same aim! Building into the natural infrastructure of NOMAD Farms can be your experiment with group projects your family could develop for your own land/neighborhood/ yard! 


WHO:              Fall Farm Camp is for families with any number of children (no upper limit), married couples, groups of friends, and singles.  You can sign up in any of these combinations (*no mixed gender camping unless you are of the same family). 


WHEN:            Friday, October 13 to Saturday, October 14, 2023

                        Rain Date/Backup Plan: Friday, October 27 to  Saturday, October 28


WHAT:             When you register, you’ll have the chance to indicate whether you want to camp/ overnight on Friday night (recommended) or whether you would like to return to your own home for sleep and come back in the morning for Saturday’s activities.  The cost is the same either way.


                        If you decide to overnight, then your posse will bring all necessary supplies for setting up your own individual campsite (virtually unlimited designated spots will be available/ mapped out when you arrive).  One of your first activities will involve getting your site ready for a good night of sleep and we’ll have a list of recommended features and the natural resources needed to prep your family’s campsite.

Campers, get ready for the most rewarding week of your short lives! Prepare to sweat, get dirty, and slog it out while you contribute to the work of a local producer of clean food in the Triad! Learn how NOMAD Farms works with nature to produce clean beef, pork, chicken, rabbit, and turkey. Befriend NOMAD animals: feed, water, assist in pasture rotation, collect eggs, and protect from predators. Tend the farm garden: plant seeds, cultivate compost, identify local species of trees and help expand forest areas. Collect and study wild herbs. Create farm-inspired art and practice your own storytelling. Make forts and build character. Play old-fashioned games. Keep a field journal and practice asking questions, generating ideas, and solving problems. Explore this museum of God’s creation and understand your role in the stewardship of it.
