- Inside Heifer
- Ideas in Action
Heifer’s Learning Center programs present an unequalled opportunity to become immersed in the subject of hunger and poverty.
Heifer International's work around the world is brought to life with Overlook Farm’s Day Camp in Rutland, Massachusetts. Campers in grades 1-6 learn about Heifer's sustainable approach to ending hunger and poverty and the challenges their global neighbors face while learning more about world cultures and enjoying activities like milking livestock, harvesting vegetables, games and arts and crafts.
Public Events - Each year Overlook Farm and Heifer Village offer public events that are ideal for family visits. View upcoming public events at Heifer Village in Arkansas or Overlook Farm in Massachusetts.
Overnight to Multi-night Programs
Each year Heifer Learning Centers offer select dates for overnight and multi-night programs for youth to participate with their families. All programs require a minimum age of 12 and an accompanying adult chaperone per five youth.
Global Gateway - Global Gateway creates an existence in which nothing – shelter, food, water or cooking fuel – can be taken for granted. Participants prepare a meal with limited resources and sleep in simple housing.
Global Challenge - Global Challenge combines the Global Gateway experience with team-building activities.
Alternative Break – Alternative Break , a four to five night program, includes a night in the Global Village, team-building exercises, service projects and more.
