Animals - the Heart of Nature Camp
Knowledgeable staff and local farmers provide a true learning experience. Daily classes offer campers the opportunity to care for our animal population, including our world famous llamas. This is nature camp at its best.
Our Farm Animals
Children love our farm animals, learning how to feed, groom, and care for rabbits, kittens, ducklings, miniature horses, miniature donkeys, and a pot-bellied pig.
We cannot forget how the llamas, kittens, ducks, pigs, horses, and donkey sated her compassion for animals. -HVC Parent
We offer llama care and grooming, llama showing and llama obstacle jumping and llama trekking. The ultimate nature camp, right?
I think I could turn and live with the animals, they are so
placid and self-contain'd
I could stand and look at them long and long…
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins…
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania
of owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands
of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth
~ Walt Whitman
