Farm Summer Day Camp

4 – 12 years old

Fun and learning come alive at Phillies Bridge Farm Camp! Spend time getting your hands in the dirt, picking fresh veggies and connecting to the land. Daily camp activities include hands-on gardening, visits with the farm animals, cooperative games, music, storytelling, farm-based arts & crafts, and so much more. Click here to see a sample daily camp schedule.

Campers will also spend time exploring our 1.5 mile Nature Trail through 45 acres of woods and wetlands learning plant identification, practicing animal tracking, and other wilderness skills such as shelter construction.

In addition to daily farm activities at camp, each themed session brings new opportunities for exploration and fun!  Each session will be a little bit different, with developmentally appropriate hands-on projects and crafts, so please feel free to enjoy as many sessions as you wish!

We have a low ratio of one camp counselor for 12 campers, and oftentimes it is less. This ensures your child gets all the attention he or she needs.
