Summer Camps

Camps are week-long day camps where children get the opportunity to immerse themselves in farm and garden life. They explore, help with farm chores, express their creativity with art projects, learn how to cook fresh vegetables and snack their way through the fields!

Farm Camp

Farm Camps take place at Calypso Farm and immerse children in life on the farm through play, creativity, and exploration.
