Community Doesn't End When Camp Does.
Like branches of a tree, our lives may grow in different directions yet our roots remain the same.
Polly has been part of Farm & Wilderness for 41 years as a camper, seasonal staff member, director, and several year-round roles. Outside of her work at F&W, she has provided training for boards and organizations in anti-bias work, gender, sexuality, and issues surrounding adoption. She lives in Barre, VT with her wife. Her two children are third generation F&Wers. The oldest, Cedar attended the BDC and SAM, and most recently was the Adventure Head at F&W. Polly's daughter Terri went through the BDC and FS as a camper while managing to never live in a cabin that Polly lived in while at FS for 13 years. Polly loves working with children, being silly, canoeing, rock climbing, team sports, leisure tubing, camping and being out in nature.

Help us make camp
Affordable For All
Farm & Wilderness has launched an effort to make our camp experience truly affordable for all families!
While F&W has a long history of our generous community providing financial aid through Camperships, we know that to truly make F&W affordable for all – we must do more than provide financial aid. Therefore, we are raising money for our expanded Campership Program.
This program goes beyond tuition assistance to fund a program that makes Farm & Wilderness truly accessible and affordable for all!
