Snipes Day Camps Registration Form

Campers at Snipes Farm Camps learn about farming first-hand and soak in its peace and beauty. They can explore the farm as an artist or scientist and cook with fresh delicious ingredients they've harvested themselves. Stewardship is at the heart of all that we do: learning how to take good care of the Earth and each other. We recycle, compost and use natural materials found on the farm for art projects. Campers learn about Earth Friendly Farming which uses no pesiticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Whether planting or playing, lasting friendships and memories are made.

Parent Testimonials

"We chose the camp because we wanted our daughter to have a better appreciation for where food comes from, the work that goes into it, and the rewards of that kind of work (being close to nature, seeing the fruits of good work).  She particularly enjoyed feeding the chickens and really liked getting to eat the sugar snap peas off the bushes.  She was inspired by getting to see the animals behaving freely in their own environment on the farm." - Jennifer D.

"The children said that they loved everything about the camp and it was hard to choose what they liked best.  We loved that they had the opportunity.  Certainly camp would be something we would do again."   - Jen S.
