Farm Camp at 1870 Farm!
A camp experience like no other...
Summer camp at 1870 Farm offers enticing opportunities for kids to unplug and tune in to the natural world. We offer multiple one-week camp options for ages 3.5-13, as well as a CIT program for 14-, 15-, and 16-year-olds.
To keep things fresh, each week brings new topics for ever-changing exploration and fun. Campers will grow, learn, and play through creative hands-on projects, developmentally appropriate activities, including hikes, crafts, games, hayrides gardening, cooking and much more!
Summertime at the farm also includes much desired hanging out with animals and caring for them!
We know the summer can be hot, and we are cognizant of making sure campers rotate in and out of our climate-controlled areas and have plenty of shade to relax under.
A day in the life of 1870 Farm Summer Camp:
A typical summer day at 1870 Farm will include a morning meet-up after which camp groups might choose from a variety of farm activities: animal care, garden work, hiking, finding eggs, making goat soap or pickles, or fishing in the pond!
Later in the day, campers might visit the art space and get creative, engage in a good ol’ game of capture the flag, explore the forest and build forts, try their luck at gem mining or archery, or even embark on a historical scavenger hunt! Once campers have worked up an appetite, the groups gather again for snack and afternoon activities.
Afternoons at 1870 Farm are filled with activities such as archery, photography, fishing, farm-inspired art creations, tinkering, water explorations, yoga and more.
Lunch, organized group games, and ongoing long-term farm activities fill our afternoons until parents arrive.
Every week includes animal care, gemstone mining, arts and crafts, creative construction and outdoor games. Older campers ages will get an opportunity to participate in our Entrepreneurs Club to design, create and sell their wares on Family Farm Fridays!
