We are planning fun, creative and enriching hands-on, nature-inspired adventures for our campers. Stony Kill Farm Camp is a place where your child will explore and discover the wonders of the outdoors while instilling a sense of respect and appreciation for the natural world. In so doing, we hope to inspire your children to become environmentally responsible and conscientious citizens of the future, to spark a lifelong love of learning, and to develop a deep and enduring connection with the natural world…all while having some good old fashioned fun in our beautiful setting.
Our camp provides a balance of structured and free play with environmental exploration, enjoyment of many arts and crafts experiences, and age-appropriate learning activities. These experiences will encourage children’s natural curiosity and respect of the outdoors, while building social and life skills.
Life on the Farm Camp: June 19 – 23
During our first week of camp, we’ll learn how to care for our farm animals and discover our historic big red barn and our old tools. Each day will focus on aspects of farm life through observation, creation and exploration. Campers will sample different foods that come from our farm, explore the greenhouse and start their own seeds while learning about native plants and the importance of composting. We’ll walk along the blue bird trail and explore our haying fields while learning about our neighboring bee hives. If your child has a love of farm life, this is the camp for them. Life on the Farm Camp is perfect for children ages 4-12 and takes place from 9:00-3:00 every day, Monday through Friday.
Summer Explorers’ Camp Week 1: June 26 – 30
