Farm Explorers Summer Camp
Experienced campers do it all at Casey Farm
This weeklong 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, and play action-packed nature games. Campers also hike down to Narragansett Bay to explore 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, Protect the Nest, and Deadly Links. Campers face team challenges that foster long-lasting friendships and leadership skills. Writing with quill pens, building fires, dissecting owl pellets, and making a variety of crafts are just some of the exciting activities the youthful farm explorers will experience.
