Family Week

General Information

Family Week is a group week that is specifically designed for families to come down to the Farm and work with our homeowners. Children and adults of all ages are invited and encouraged to come. You are also highly encouraged to check out the About Us and Resources sections to learn more about the Farm, Doddridge County, Appalachia, and many of the details about what a week at the Farm might look like.

COVID Protocol

At this time, Nazareth Farm is unable to determine if vaccines will be required in order to participate in a service week for the summer. It is a distinct possibility that all or some volunteers will need COVID-19 vaccinations. Nazareth Farm will adhere to CDC guidelines and appreciates your cooperation as we navigate through the pandemic. Furthermore, Nazareth Farm recommends procuring travelers insurance for your trip in case there are last minute cancellations from your group or Nazareth Farm. Nazareth Farm will uphold our current cancelation and refund policy regardless of CDC guideline changes or group week cancelations. You will be notified about our finalized COVID protocol for the week by April 1.

Before You Arrive

Allergy Information

Nazareth Farm is not a peanut-free environment. However, we will do our best to create a safe environment for participants with allergies. If you do have allergies, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at well before your trip so we can best prepare our facilities.

Cell Phone Policy

Cell phones do not receive service in the valley where Nazareth Farm is located. Volunteers and chaperones should not expect that they will be able to use cell phones while they are here. We expect chaperones and group leaders to collect cell phones prior to the group’s arrival. We have a lock box available to store cell phones in our office. Nazareth Farm’s office phone number (304-782-2742) will be available in case of emergencies. Otherwise, please do not plan to contact participants during the retreat week to help create an immersive experience for all.
