The farm runs a popular Young Farmer Club for children aged 8 to 16 years who are resident in Camden. This is a unique opportunity for children to gain hands on experience of animal care and a better understanding of nature and the environment.

Children will benefit from being in the open air and physically active around the farm. Young Farmers help out with the animals at weekends and learn to take on the responsibilities and challenges that animals can sometimes present!

There are also opportunities to take part in many activities and events throughout the year and Young Farmers play a big part in supporting our annual Seasonal Festivals. KTCF Young Farmers club is a great way to develop social and practical skills and make friends along the way.

Special Opportunities
