Frog Meadow Spring+Fall Work Camp
Come join us for our annual Spring or Fall Work Camp…it’s the all-boys sleep-away camp you wished your parents had sent you to! Frog Meadow Work Camp is a week of camaraderie and fun mixed in with indoor and outdoor work as we get Frog Meadow Farm ready for Summer Season or put to bed prior to Winter Season! Choose to stay for a minimum of 2 nights – or more – or for the whole duration!
For $25* a night, we provide accommodations and Dave’s fabulous country breakfast & a hearty lunch each day. In the evenings we coordinate group dinners with shared responsibilities. In return we ask for 6 hours of work for each night you’re with us at Frog Meadow.
There is trail work, yard cleanup, garden work, spring & fall cleaning around the house, painting, setting up the outdoor furniture, wood stacking, light carpentry, etc. In the evening there is the hot tub and good company!
Especially helpful are guests with chain saws, and/or carpentry, painting or electrical skills, gardeners, massage and kitchen skills & support help – but all are welcome!
- Spring 2018 Work Camp dates: Saturday April 14 through Sunday April 22 At this time Spring Work Camp is fully booked

Work-in-Kind Fellowship Programs
We are always interested in hearing from guys with skills like gardening & landscaping, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, painting and other similar talents to help us with ongoing projects at Frog Meadow.
Based on the time of year and our needs we will create a Work-in-Kind Fellowship Program that allows you to participate in Frog Meadow’s Community while we get the work done on a trade basis.
Frog Meadow’s Garden Fellowship:
Camaraderie+Fun+Garden Work=Lodging for $25* a Night!
Do you enjoy gardening and the outdoors & have flexibility to visit Frog Meadow during midweek in June? Do you live in the city and miss being able to play in the garden?
Then our Garden Fellowship may be just the thing for you! Think of it as the gay man’s version of the “Fresh Air Fund”.
How it works: Join us for two or more consecutive days Sunday through Thursday (subject to availability) and lend a hand in the gardens for six flexible hours each day, helping us with basic garden & landscaping work. In return you’ll earn a stipend worth the value of your lodging stay (less a $25* per-night administrative fee) plus a full country breakfast each day while you’re enrolled in the program!
During the day there’ll be plenty of time to cool off in the swimming pond, enjoy the hiking trails & visit nearby Rock River. In the evening there’s the hot tub and the good company of other Frog Meadow guests & of course your hosts, Scott & Dave!
