AlpacaU Boot Camp Details
Immerse Yourself

A fun way to see what all the fuss about alpacas is and an opportunity to IMMERSE YOURSELF in the world of an alpaca breeding farm. 


An experience for everyone:
  • Perhaps you’re exploring the alpaca way of life, or 

  • maybe you’ve decided alpacas are definitely in your future, and you need some learning time. 

  • New to alpacas, and now you’re thinking, “Now What”?

  • Already have alpacas and need some hands-on training?


No matter the reason, there’s something for everyone.  And if you’re just not sure, come visit us, learn who we are, what we do, and then decide.  No cost to you for this visit, no risk, no obligation.  Just a visit.

A Bit About Boot Camp:

Boot camp attendees become a member of our farm crew.  Whatever we do, so do our campers—every morning, rain or shine.  At our farm, routine care always gets done in the morning:  clean-up, feeding, nail trimmings, medications, special care that might be needed. And in the summer, especially during the months of boot camp, we breed our own females and several females from and for other farms. And for even more fun we birth baby alpacas (crias), and take special care of new moms and their crias.  And of course, we have vet visits, and who knows what else. Every day brings new adventures.

Campers will see and do a lot—all with our hands-on guidance and learning.
