Summer Camp 2023
Farm & natured based camping programs for children ages 1-17! We’ve got a wonderful summer planned with a program option for everyone!
*Please note our camp program ages listed are for the age of camper at the time of camp. Programs with grades listed are the grade the camper will be entering in the fall of ’23. Keeping in mind the combined ages in any program and the social and developmental age of your child, for day time programs only, we do allow a one year variance to age down into a program however there is no variance to age up into a program. (For example, if you have an 11 year old camper that would like to join the 7-10 year old Farm Explorers program, that is permissible.) Please note that for overnight programs, there is no age variance allowed.
The Children’s Farm is a great place to have a unique, memorable summer camp experience. We have summer programs for children ages 1-17! Programs range from short day classes to overnight, residential camping and everything in between. Programs are highlighted below. Please visit our website for more information and registration links!
Teen Leadership Training for Grades 10th – 12th – Designed for teens with a desire to become part of our camp leadership team at The Center.

Long Day, Day Camping for Children Ages 9-12 – Farm Camp (Days Only) 6 days (Sunday evening, Monday-Thursday all day, Friday 1/2 day) side by side with our residential farm campers.

We feel this is a great way to satisfy the camper that is ‘almost’ ready for overnight camp.
