July 9 - August 17, 2018Monday-Friday, 9am-3pmOne-week enrollment options
A farm and forest day camp for ages 7-12.
Our summer camp program will explore the forests and the Community Farm at Smokey House Center, with a mix of guided activities as well as less structured time for exploration and discovery. Campers will build huts, pick flowers, look for bugs, grow and eat food from the garden, watch birds, chase frogs, play games, and generally spend their week outdoors. No handheld electronic devices, no screens, just a summer full of farm and forest fun. Camps will be led by a skilled adult leader with youth leaders serving as assistants.
Camp Registration Fee: $125 per camper, per week.
Notes influencing camp pricing: - We have made every effort to offer this camp for a reasonable, modest fee.- We do not offer reduced pricing for multiple weeks or multiple campers. - Please expect to provide lunch for your camper(s) daily. We will provide some purchased snacks and food from our gardens.- We will offer after-care daily from 3pm-5pm for a flat weekly fee of $20.- Thanks to the generosity of several local donors, full scholarships for Danby residents may be available.
