Summer Camp Sessions

For campers entering Grades 1-4 in Fall 2023

Immerse your camper in the daily chores and activities of our Heckscher Farm in this interactive program. Campers will be responsible for helping with daily chores such as grooming, exercising, feeding, and cleaning farm animals, and will also help with weekly produce harvest and planting in our organic garden.  Learn how to properly exercise and provide enrichment for animals, explore our hay lofts and barns, and hang out in the pastures! Kids will also participate in hands-on cooking and farm crafts. Campers will be outside on the Heckscher Farm, except in most inclement weather, and should bring a daily peanut/tree nut-free lunch and snack.  Limited to 12 campers per week for a great small group experience. Campers may register for more than one session if desired. Some activities may be the same each week, but the weeks will not be completely identical. 

Summer Session 1: July 10 - 14
Summer Session 2: July 17 - 21
Summer Session 3: July 24 - 28-FULL
Summer Session 4: July 31 - August 4-FULL
