farm and ecology summer day camps for children

at Turkey Hill Farm, Maine

Campers walk with a pony through the Lillies.Growing nature lovers through hands-in-the dirt fun!

 

Farm Camp teaches environmental literacy through guided exploration in a variety of habitats. Our campers grow, harvest, and eat organic vegetables, feed and care for farm animals, and learn through nature based-literature, and child-centered, fun activities.

 

Turkey Hill, the small, organic farm that hosts our day camp, is just minutes from Portland’s Casco Bay Bridge on Cape Elizabeth, Maine, just five miles from Portland and fifteen minutes from Scarborough. The historic farm house, barn, and 25 acres are owned by the Eastman family. Peter and his son John are managing the Cape Elizabeth gem as a community resource. In 2009, they placed the property with the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust under a conservation easement.  

 

Farm Camp at Turkey Hill Farm serves children ages 4-9.

 

Farm Trek offers weekly adventures for children ages 10-16.

 

 

In 2010, Farm Camp was featured on PBS's Emmy Nominated Incredible Maine!. Watch the video.
