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 play and guided exploration in a variety of habitats. Campers feed and care for farm animals, collect eggs, plant and harvest vegetables, and make recipes like kale chips and raspberry jam. We read from stories like Charlotte’s Web, play active predator/prey games, build forts, hunt for frogs, salamanders and dragonflies, create earthy art and enjoy nature.

 

Turkey Hill Farm, in Cape Elizabeth, Maine is the setting for our day camp just five miles from Portland and fifteen minutes from Scarborough. The historic farm house, barn, and 25 acres are owned by Peter Eastman. In 2009, he 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.
