Snipes Farm Day Camp 2022

Outdoor adventures await in the creeks, fields, gardens and orchard where nature is our inspiration and teacher! Campers make friends and discoveries through games,music,science and art. Daily care of barn yard animals, gardening and cooking help campers to gain life skills and the values of stewardship and community.

A Covid Conscious Camp

As we have throughout the pandemic Snipes Farm and Education Center will continue to follow guidelines from the CDC and the American Camping Association closely and plan accordingly. A camp nurse will coordinate our wellness program.
