A visit to MSU Tollgate is a fun and enriching opportunity to experience the natural world hands-on. Our camps, programs, and field trips offer children learning adventures in farm and food, discovery science, and natural resources exploration.  

Young people are empowered to be in charge of their own learning and are instilled with a passion for self-directed, life-long learning. Through research-based methods and curriculum, a visit to Tollgate helps develop life skills and inspire conscious food consumers.  

With your help through contributions, children and adults can: 

  • * visit a 160-acre farm amidst Michigan's largest metro area 
  • * explore the connection of farm to table 
  • * experience farm life and farm animals 
  • * become participants in their own education                            


Our financial aid fund exists through the generosity of community partners and allows opportunities for: 

  • ~ urban school students to experience connections between the farm and their daily lives. 
  • ~ campers to experience a rich, engaging program and build skills for lifelong success.
