Farm Explorers Summer Camp
Experienced campers do it all at Casey Farm
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, investigate our cranberry bog, play nature games, and hike down to Narragansett Bay to investigate the shoreline and get their hands dirty hunting on a rock hunt, catching crabs and collecting sea life.
Groups take a hay ride down to Narrow River where they enjoy an extended supervised swim, and every day they help feed and care for a different farm animal. During this active week, campers get to enjoy games, such as Capture the Flag, that foster long-lasting friendships and develop team-building skills. Writing with quill pens, building fires, dissecting owl pellets, and making a variety of crafts are just some of the things farm exploreers experience.
