Our one-of-a-kind day camp for kids ages 10-15 is located at Round Mountain Creamery, our 28-acre goat dairy farmstead in Black Mountain, NC. October 10 - 15, 2022.
Our camp intends on educating campers on the hard work that goes into running a farm, and how to care for goats as if they were their own! They will learn day-to-day dairy farm necessities such as feeding, learning how to milk a goat, and the process of making cheese. At the end of the week, they will leave this experience with their own cheese that they made from start to finish, able to share their hard work with a tasty treat for their family. RMC campers will also have conversations around the importance of sustainability, kindness for animals, and the creation of food. The focus of this experience is for kids to get the chance to explore animal care, farm life, and cheese-making in a safe, encouraging, and compassionate environment. We believe in treating animals and the earth with respect, getting dirty, making what you eat, and having fun while you do it.
