The Country Experience is 34-acre family farm in Elizabeth, Illinois. During the Summer we host children for week-long sleep-away farm camp and guests of all ages for weekend farm-stays. In the Spring and Fall, farm-stays continue while farm camp transitions to overnight school group visits, for between 3-13 days. Visitors appreciate the rural pace, beauty of our land, and the experience of life on a family farm.
Our prepared farm environment is intentionally designed to allow guests to be “inside the fences,” using real tools to do meaningful work. The logical flow of daily chores and projects, care of animals and gardens, and preparation of farm-fresh meals together in
the fully licensed commercial kitchen allows children to develop important life skills including communication and responsibility, decision making and team-work and respect for self and others. In the process, they discover a sense of who they are becoming, learn they have value, and build grit and character.
