LEAP is a revolutionary humane education program providing high school students across the nation with a compassionate alternative to traditional agriculture programs like 4H and FFA. A comprehensive four-year program taught by participating farm animal sanctuaries, LEAP combines interactive curriculum modules with hands-on learning activities, leadership training, and real-world skill development. LEAP aims to prepare the next generation of changemakers to tackle the challenges of animal cruelty, climate change, food deserts, and habitat loss, and encourages them to devise solutions for a more compassionate, sustainable food system.

Our children are our future! Each week-long day camp for kids age 6-9 aims to instill in students an appreciation and respect for the world we live in, as well as kindness and compassion for the animals we share it with, ourselves, and each other. We are so excited to teach our students how our daily actions can help create a kinder, healthier, happier world.
The camp will feature different teaching topics and activities each day including farm animal anatomy and behavior, nutritious eating habits, environmental practices, gardening and healthy soil, diversity and inclusion in our community, compassion and empathy, and of course lots of fun arts and crafts projects. We will also have guest speakers and presentations from our friends in the community.
Camp is taught in a small, secure setting by teachers who carry knowledge and experience in the topics covered. We'll also include a group tour of Goatlandia for students and their families!
