Summer camp at MSU Tollgate is a fun and enriching opportunity to experience the natural world hands-on.

We place significant value in the experiential model of "Do, Reflect, Apply" allowing campers to take the experience and relate it back to concepts learned in the classroom. In doing so, young people are empowered to be in charge of their own learning, instilling a passion for self-directed, life-long exploration.
We offer various exciting camp themes, but each week campers also engage in fun, farm-based activities such as harvesting farm food to prepare tasty snacks, caring for and learning from the animals, and exploring the 40 acres of woodlands. Other activities vary depending on the camp week and may include archery, canoeing, fishing, horsebackriding, challenge course activities, building, and more. With 160 acres and so much to do there is no reason to leave the farm.
