Due to the unfortunate pandemic disruption, we have moved Coop Camp 2020 from June to August. Come join in on the fun! A great weekend of classroom and hands-on learning, socializing with other chicken people, Chicken Poop Bingo, door prizes, goat yoga and plenty of laughs.

We do our best to keep costs down, and bring you the best value for your money!
The base price for adults is $150 with special pricing for children (under 18), Coop Camp alumni, and Coops for Troops recipients and their families.
This price includes Camp Socials on Friday and Saturday evenings, all twelve incredible educational presentations, continental breakfast before camp each morning and snacks. In addition, each Camper receives an awesome goodie bag stuffed with treats, samples and coupons. And don’t forget our amazing door prizes at each presentation!
As part of our efforts to keep Camp affordable, we offer several optional
Hands-On Workshops during the weekend (these may include a material or instructor fee). Campers pick and choose workshops to attend based on their own personal interests. The Workshop list will be emailed to Campers in early April to make their selections. We anticipate 6-7 optional workshops.

Coop Camp is a weekend of education for chicken-keepers…but so much more! We also learn a bit about beekeeping, goats, gardening and other “farm skills”. AND Coop Camp is also three days of making new friends, seeing old friends, learning new skills, building a community, laughter, learning, relaxing, getting away from the everyday grind and challenging yourself! And don’t go home without shopping the tables in the Marketplace, where you’ll find a variety of supplies, art, trinkets and treasures to treat your chickens and yourself! Click here for the schedule.
We have a limited number of vendor tables available. If you’re interested in selling to this highly engaged chicken/bees/goats/gardening/art audience, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you’d like to present on a topic relevant to chicken keeping, beekeeping, gardening or homesteading, we are accepting presentation proposals until May 30th.
If you are interested in teaching a hands-on workshop, we are accepting proposals until May 30th.
