General Camp Rules...

  • Please be respectful and considerate of other groups using the Farm during your stay.
  • Adult supervision of youth is required at all times. We recommend at least 1 to 10 adults to child ratio.
  • Camp quiet hours are from 10:30pm – 6:30am. Groups should respect others and keep noise to an absolute minimum during these hours.
  • Smoking, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or firearms are not permitted on the grounds. Use or possession of these will result in termination of stay and/or appropriate action of local authorities.
  • Respect others' property including the Farm's. Property defacing or destruction will result in an additional charge to cover damages. You are responsible for the conduct of your group!
  • Guests are responsible for their own belongings. Personal equipment should be stored securely and handled safely.
  • Please bring all lost and found items to Marmon Valley Office. Unclaimed lost and found items will be held for one week and then donated.
  • Pets are not permitted on the Farm.
  • Passengers are not to be transported in non-passenger vehicles while on the Farm.
  • Marmon Valley Farm reserves the right to dismiss guests who do not abide by the rules of the camp.
General Information and Recommendations...

All vehicles should be parked in the parking lot. If there is a need to unload cargo, you may drive to your site to unload, but it must be parked in the lot immediately upon unloading. Disabled and elderly guests may park at more convenient locations provided traffic flow is not interrupted.

Overnight Check-In/Check-Out
Cabins will be ready for moving in at 3:00pm. All gear must be moved out of cabins by 10:00am on your departure day. Guests are welcome to enjoy the rest of the farm after they have checked out of their lodging.

First Aid
Each group is fully responsible for their own first aid needs. User groups are advised to gather the names and address of all participants, emergency contact names and numbers, a list of any person's known allergies or health conditions that may require treatment, restriction or other accommodation while on site, and signed permission to seek emergency treatment. Keep those records on hand for the duration of the retreat. Marmon Valley Farm suggests each user group bring at least one adult with current CPR and First Aid certifications. An accident report must be completed in the office (or stables) following any accidents or incidents beyond minor scratches and bruises that occur during your stay.

Available Facilities
You are welcome to enjoy the farm and visit the animal barns, gift shop, and other public spaces. However, many of the buildings on the property house other guests contain farm equipment and other machinery. Therefore, please do not enter buildings that have not been designated for your group or for farm sponsored public activities.

Animals, The Big Red Barn, Hayloft, & Hay Maze
Please feel free to visit the animals around the farm. Several animals live in and around the Big Red Barn; please do not enter the pens with any of the animals. Animals may be fed grass or feed may be purchased at the Office for any but the rabbits. Please do not chase animals or use them to scare others. For your protection, always wash your hands after handling animals. The Hayloft and Hay Maze in the Big Rd Barn may not be available if a group is lodging there. Adult supervision is always required in these areas.
