Dear Friends of Whippoorwill,
We have bittersweet news to share. After 50 years of operating camp, our family is retiring to enjoy a simpler life on the farm. Sadly, this means that Whippoorwill Farm Day Camp is permanently closing. Please know this decision has been very difficult – we’ve loved sharing the farm with you and your families. Whippoorwill Farm will remain in the family and there are absolutely no plans to sell or develop the property.

Thanks for 50 years of wonderful memories!
Sidney Wooten, Founder and Owner
