The Board of Directors of Snipes Farm and Education Center deeply regrets the closing of Snipes Farm Day Camp for the 2020 season due to Covid-19 related concerns and challenges. Our camp community 13-years in the making is beautiful and strong and we will stay connected! Stay tuned for upcoming Virtual Camp programming-farm tours, cooking and more!
