If your brood is ready to unplug and seek a simpler life, you’ll find it here. Set next to a reservoir in central Vermont, Farm & Wilderness has its own farm, featuring resident cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens and ducks, along with an organic garden. Campers learn about sustainable farm life firsthand as they partake in barn chores and pull vegetables for dinner. Supported by a small staff, families take over running the camp for the week, choosing their own activites (hiking, canoeing, crafts) on 4,000 secluded acres of lakes, woods and fields. Stay in a rustic open cabin quipped with bunks and foam mattresses, but no electricity or hot water. Composting outhouses and hot showers are nearby. The camp is almost self-sufficient, so expect abundant veggies and super-fresh meat with very little processed food. Camp runs Aug 17–23. $435 per person, kids ages 5 to 15 $235, under 5 free.
