Farm Camps at Calypso Farm & Ecology Center immerse children in life on the farm through play, creativity, and exploration.
These week-long sessions for ages 5-7 and 8-12 are packed with activity: befriending farm animals, harvesting and cooking garden snacks, art projects, fort building, science experiments, and more!
With 20 students per session and a 4:1 camper to staff ratio, all campers will have the opportunity to connect with each other and learn from our vibrant, experienced summer staff.
