Summer Fun Half-Days, Ages 4-6

A Morning on the Farm, Perfect for the Youngest Campers!

At Casey Farm

Perfect for first-time Casey Farm campers or campers not ready for a full-day experience, these half-day programs introduce your preschooler to the world of farming through engaging and fun activities. The programs are specially designed for preschoolers with a predictable schedule.

All programs will include a themed craft, activity, game, song, organic snack harvested by the children from our gardens, and end with a story. Most programs will include an animal visit.

New for 2024! Please note: These programs have been newly designed for young children to attend on their own. We have changed the age range to ages 4-6, and all attendees must be toilet trained. We have added a Preschool Summer Fun Hour on Tuesdays for children ages 2-6 and their caretakers to attend together.
