whippoorwill field

Dear Friends of Whippoorwill,
After 50 years of operating camp, our family has retired to enjoy a simpler life on the farm. Sadly, this means that Whippoorwill Farm Day Camp is permanently closed. 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

Change is hard, for both children and adults. We have activities, books and tip sheets to help you share what you’re feeling.
