Fernbrook Farms Education Center offers Fiddlehead Day Camp (age 6-11) and Young Stewards Enrichment Program (age 12-14) weekly from the end of June to Labor Day. Your children may join us for one week or as many weeks as you wish. Days begin at 8:30am and run until 4:00pm with extended care available before and after the camp day. Healthy snacks are provided and campers are expected to bring a nutritious lunch.
Here at Fernbrook, your kids will become dirty and tired, but that’s what happens when kids are truly active and experience nature firsthand! Our goal is that each child leaves our farm with a sixth sense: a sense of appreciation of the natural world, agriculture, and healthy lifestyles.
Fun-filled Fernbrook activities might include:
• catching frogs and insects while exploring the ponds and creeks
• harvesting vegetables from our Children’s Garden
• starting a campfire with a bow drill
• crafting musical instruments from natural objects
• feeding and caring for the farm animals
• building a shelter and learning about wilderness survival
