In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous. – Aristotle
Sidney Wooten started Whippoorwill Farm Day Camp so children could learn about the wonders of nature and of themselves. When camp began four decades ago, the morning council ring included a reading from Thoreau’s Walden, perhaps this passage: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
Today, Whippoorwill strives to protect the land that generations of campers have loved. Learn more about sustainability at Whippoorwill below.
