Farm Explorers Summer Camp

Rhode Island

collecting samplesNOTE: This camp is SOLD OUT for 2016

This week-long camp for our most experienced campers has children exploring far and wide on Casey Farm's three hundred acres. Campers hunt for frogs and tadpoles at the pond, learn about wild animals on a hike through our fields and forests, play nature games, and hike down to Narragansett Bay to investigate the shoreline and get their hands dirty hunting for crabs. Groups take a hay ride down to Narrow River where they enjoy a supervised swim, and every day they help feed and care for a different farm animal. Kids also learn how to write with quill pens, undertake a bug hunt, learn how to make a fire, and make a weaving to take home. Crafts include nature prints, kaleidoscopes, tribal rainsticks, animal print molds, tie-dye, rock painting, and historic toy making.
