Upcoming Farm Programming

 

Farm Haunted House
Thursday-Saturday (Oct. 22-24) and Thursday-Friday (Oct. 29, 30)
Program Description:
We hope you will join us for our annual tradition of scaring Farm members for charity!  Our Haunted House will be raising money for CLAWS (Creative Learning About Wildlife Species).  Please bring what you can to support our cause.  The Haunted House will be an individual experience this year. Tours will consist of an individual family walk through with no tour guide. The theme is “afraid to be alone”. We will offer five nights of tours in order to provide opportunities to as many people as possible. Tours will run 7:00-9:00 pm each night. You will need to sign up using your Omnify Account. Please reserve a thirty-minute block for your party. When reserving your block, please only reserve one (1) space per time slot for your entire family (no guests allowed this year, limiting this to Farm members only). We are allowing 10 families to sign up during each block, not 10 people.  All people will be required to wear masks while waiting in line and while walking through the house.  Please RSVP for one tour on one day, you may NOT sign up for multiple tours.

Farm Recreation Overview

The Farm offers numerous recreation and fitness opportunities year round. Most of our programs are for the entire family, including our sports night, campout night, Memorial Day picnic, and the ever-popular Haunted Forest. For smaller children, there are treasure hunts, a Spring egg hunt, Santa calling, and much more. Special events for adults include wine tastings, Oktoberfest, and summer pool parties.

Our facilities allow us to offer an exciting array of new classes such as yoga, pilates, and personal training. In our fitness room, you’ll get a full workout with four state-of-the-art cardio machines, a dual biangular transformer, a cross cable machine, and a large set of dumbbells.

In addition to our 16 tennis courts and 3 pools, The Farm has a softball field, a playground, sand volleyball court, disc golf course, basketball courts, horseshoe pits, barbecue grills, 2 picnic shelters and a clubhouse with full kitchen.


Summer Camps

Camp at The Farm is a family tradition for many of our members. First a camper, then a counselor, next an assistant director and then another generation comes along. In addition to our extremely popular summer camp program, we also offer mini-camps on teacher workdays and holidays throughout the year. Seasonal basketball and tennis camps round out our camp program. Children from ages 4 to 13 will make lots of friends and experience a wide range of age-appropriate activities that will keep them wanting to come back year after year.
