Summer Camps

Calypso offers summer camps at the farm and at the school gardens! 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.

Session I: Ages 8-12

Each morning begins with fun farm chores such as feeding animals, weeding a garden bed, or checking the coup for eggs. These 5 days are packed with a variety of activities: nature journaling, fort-building, learning about life in the field and forest, and creative projects. The week culminates with a farm lunch and final ceremony for all campers and their families. Each child gets a hand screen-printed farm camp t-shirt!
