About Belcampo Meat Camps

Coined “Summer Camp for Grown-Ups” by The Oprah Magazine, Belcampo Meat Camp is an unforgettable culinary getaway that you’ll remember for a lifetime. Every Summer at Belcampo Farms, we welcome guests to experience our popular Meat Camps, retreats, and farm stays. Our goals are simple — to connect you with the source of your food, to inspire you to cook it in a way that is rudimentary and genius all at the same time, and to have fun!

During your stay, you lodge in luxury tents on our farm orchard, enjoy family style, farm-to-table meals prepared by Belcampo chefs under the stars, and participate in a variety of meat cookery lessons throughout the day. Guests gain an inside look into the sustainable farming practices on our Animal Welfare Approved farm through guided farm tours and obtain hands on experience practicing butchery and open-fire grilling with Belcampo Organic, pasture raised meat.
