Farm Explorers Summer Camp

Rhode Island

collecting samples

Campers love exploring Casey Farm's 300 acres. They investigate Narragansett Bay at Casey Point and the farm pond, collect aquatic critters in nets, then recreate their habitats in aquariums so they can observe what they catch. 

Campers hike through fields, thickets, and forests to learn about wild animals, play nature games, swim in an estuary, ride back to the farm on the hay wagon, and help feed and water a different farm animal each day. They learn to write using quill pens, undertake a bug hunt, and learn how to make fire and, if successful, eat s'mores. Crafts include nature prints, origami, weaving, and historic toy making.

*Sessions 1, 3, and 4 are SOLD OUT for 2015. There is very limited availability remaining for Session 2*
