Amish Camp, Experience 24 hours of the REAL Simple Life.
Strasburg, PA- Hershey Farm Restaurant & Inn, a premier dining and lodging destination located in Lancaster County, PA, is offering a unique experience to students, scouts, and groups of all kinds, Amish Camp. Amish Camp is designed for groups to leave the modern life behind and experience a day in the life of the Amish. The camp's goal is to promote a deeper understanding of a centuries old lifestyle while creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Creating the first memory at Hershey Farm's Amish Camp starts with participants enjoying a PA Dutch smorgasbord. Guests then view a demonstration detailing Amish fashion and style of dress. Participants will wear modified versions of Amish garb for the rest of the experience. Camp includes hands on experiences such as 'Make your own Shoofly Pie', Amish activities, an ice cream social, buggy ride, Amish house tour, and a fireside chat with Jakey, a local Amish man who will tell stories and answer questions. At Amish Camp daily farm chores will not only be discussed, they will be done at a nearby Amish farm.
Full immersion would not be complete with out spending the night as many Amish do, with no modern conveniences, electric lights, television, or telephones. This memory is set at Hershey Farm Inn. The Inn is surrounded by 23 acres of landscaped grounds that act as a buffer against the modern world. In-room modern conveniences like electric lights and television are replaced by Amish alternatives.
