Plantation Farm Camp: Cazadero, Calif.

Located on the northern Sonoma County coast, Plantation Farm Camp is a certified green overnight camp. Campers learn what it’s like to live on a sustainable farm, caring for animals, milking cows, tending the garden, composting and giving waste to the pigs. The camp emphasizes living in an environmentally responsible way, using minimal resources and maximizing the time spent outside enjoying summer. Other activities include horseback riding, swimming and unstructured free-play time.
