Fun and learning come alive at Phillies Bridge Farm Camp again in 2020!

Phillies Bridge STEAM Farm Summer Camp offers an experience that combines the peaceful and grounding feeling of being on a farm with educational and creative play.  Our goal is to help children from all walks of life understand the importance of sustainable life practices while building and developing their own sense of character.

Each session will combine STEAM elements (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) with an emphasis on fun, farming, and learning. The children will have ample opportunity to play in the gardens and work with the animals on a daily basis. Their farm experience will be supplemented by an exploration into how we do the things we do at Phillies Bridge with hands-on crafts and experiments.  

You do not have to be a science buff to enjoy STEAM camp, as our activities are generally as creative as they are scientific, and much of our day at camp is spent exploring the farm, including our discovery garden with edible herbs, flowers, and berries, our education garden (a mini version of the working Phillies Bridge CSA), and our 1.5 mile nature trail that winds through the wooded 60 acres of protected land that is part of PBFP.  

Camps are open to ages 4-12.  Children are grouped by age for a portion of the day and also come together as a whole for community activities and games. We have a low ratio of one camp counselor for seven campers, and oftentimes it is less. This ensures your child gets all the attention he or she needs.

Here’s a wonderful article about our first STEAM camp session.

Please note: Although we do our best to follow our themed schedule, our camp activities are based on the availability of the farm, crops, and supplies. Certain activities may need to be updated or changed due to weather conditions beyond our control, and therefore are not guaranteed.Payment and Refund Policy
Full payment or a $150 non-refundable and non-transferable deposit per child is required to hold a spot for your child(ren). The balance of the camp tuition is due before June 1st, 2020. If the balance is due after that date, we do not guarantee a spot for your child. Refunds are available (less a $150 non-refundable non-transferable fee per child) for registration cancellations up to 30 days before the first day of your child’s camp session. For cancellation with less than 30 days notice, no refund or credit will be provided. We have established this refund policy in order to ensure that we can cover the costs of our programs, fill all available camper slots, and hire the appropriate number of staff based on the number of program participants. A $35 registration fee is added to your total upon registration after April 1st.
