Learning Center

The Philip Foster Farm is all about hands on learning experiences for people of all ages.    Kids of all ages love the farm as it allows them to see and feel what life as a pioneer was all about.  We teach history of the Foster Family as well as Oregon Trail history.  If you are looking for a more immersive experience we offer group tours, summer camps, and host a handful of annual events that will take visitors for a peek of the past on the farm.   

The Jacknife-Zion-Horseheaven also collaborates with the Clackamas County Heritage Council to improve historic preservation and education across our county. 

Many of our staff have “grown up” at the Farm, coming in as guests at a tour or camp, and then becoming volunteers, before making the transition to paid staff.  If you are interested in volunteering, please email [email protected] for more information. 

Philip Foster Farm is a great place to learn, grow, and serve others, where a kid can be a “value creator” and take real responsibility in a safe, supervised environment.
