RIISE Welcomes Farm & Wilderness


We are proud of our partnership with our newest affiliate, Farm & Wilderness Foundation.

Farm & Wilderness is an extraordinary summer camp program in Vermont that helps campers discover their best selves!
Their mission:

  • To grow the seeds of courage and integrity in all participants
  • To offer rugged, hands-on, outdoor adventure and challenge
  • To encourage hard work and joyful play
  • To create community that values long term stewardship of our environment

Inclusivity and equity are core to the summer camp experience, “At Farm & Wilderness, we believe that a diverse community makes us stronger and more resilient.” The summer camp program focuses on community, home grown fun and living closely with the natural world.

F&W offers six overnight camps for children ages nine through seventeen, a day camp and a family camp. Four generations of campers have learned a lifelong love of nature and the joy of a simple, participatory life here in the Vermont woods.

Explore Farm & Wilderness and meet their Executive Director, Rebecca Thomas Geary at RIISE’s Parent Power Conference 2015 on Saturday, April 25.
