Animals - the Heart of Nature Camp

Knowledgeable staff and local farmers provide a true learning experience. Daily classes offer campers the opportunity to care for our animal population, including our world famous llamas. This is nature camp at its best.

Our Farm Animals

Children love our farm animals, learning how to feed, groom, and care for rabbits, kittens, ducklings, miniature horses, miniature donkeys, and a pot-bellied pig. 

We cannot forget how the llamas, kittens, ducks, pigs, horses, and donkey sated her compassion for animals. -HVC Parent

Nature camp means chicks, llamas, horses, and more

Llama Care

HVC's llamas come from the largest herd in New England. Llamas are the aristocrats of the animal kingdom. They are gentle, curious, and obedient pack animals. Unless fighting, they do not spit as their brother camels do!

We offer llama care and grooming, llama showing and llama obstacle jumping and llama trekking. The ultimate nature camp, right?

I think I could turn and live with the animals, they are so
placid and self-contain'd
I could stand and look at them long and long…
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins…
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania 
of owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands 
of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth

~ Walt Whitman
