Farm Camp - Hands-in-the-dirt fun!

Farm Camp is looking forward to our 12th summer of hands-in-the-dirt fun! Farm Camp is a farm and ecology day camp for kids, ages 4-14, at Turkey Hill Farm in Cape Elizabeth and The Morris Farm in Wiscasset. These two organic farms are engaged in local, sustainable agriculture. Kids learn through fun, hands-on activities digging in the garden, doing farm chores, caring for farm animals, exploring forest and pond habitats and lots of creative outdoor play. We grow organic fruits and vegetables in the Children’s Garden, collect eggs from the hens, and pick wild and cultivated berries. We catch frogs and aquatic insects in the pond, build fairy houses and forts in the woods and create art projects using the gifts of nature.

Back again this summer is Farm Trek, a week of adventure for 10-14 year olds. This program begins at Turkey Hill Farm in Cape an over-night camp-out.

Farm Camp is open throughout the summer and has part time or full time options with after care available until 5:00.
