Summer Day Camp

As of 5/9/24, there are open spots for most weeks of camp, and scholarships are still available. Please click here to register and/or to request financial support.

Rolling farm fields and shaded forest edges along the Connecticut River are the idyllic backdrops for our Summer Camp at Cedar Circle. Curiosity and wonder are all around as campers spend a week on a working organic farm connecting to their food, ecosystem, and community.

Our highly qualified educators believe campers are the most engaged and learn best when their curiosity and hands-on experiences are encouraged and empowered through real-life experiences. Explorations through the kale rows, adventures along the riverbank, and games between the cedar trees will cultivate a genuine appreciation for our ecosystems here in the Upper Valley, as well as the farm-fresh food and the community connections fostered within this unique setting.

Experienced staff facilitates campers entering 1st through 6th grade (ages 6-11) through activities and learning opportunities in small groups. In addition to daily farm chores, games, and sensory-based explorations, campers choose their own activities throughout the week. Some of these may include: putting on a farmers’ market for families at pick-up; collecting macroinvertebrates from the Connecticut River and discovering what they can tell us about water quality; picking flowers from the cut-flower garden to incorporate into art projects.

Safety, fun, and community building are the foundation of our education programs. Our program is designed to instill a strong sense of stewardship and belonging among our campers, the environment, and one another.

“Our kids were nervous for about ten seconds before arriving and feeling instantly welcomed and excited. The setting is ideal, and the counselors give the kids a sense of ownership and belonging right away. From naming the spaces, and laying out clear (but not rigid) daily plans, it’s the right mix of structure and open-ended-ness. Kids came home muddy, happy, and with LOTS of information to share.”

“My grandson… spent a wonderful week at your Camp in July and I wanted to thank you for providing such a gentle, accepting, and fascinating adventure for him. The counselors could not have been better!”

“I was very happy with the camp - he came home happy and excited every day, I really liked that he CHOSE to participate in harvesting and cooking projects, knot-tying, etc… It also warmed my heart to hear him singing camp songs in his bed at night - very very sweet.”

“[Our camper] loved summer farm camp. She liked the games, the songs, cooking, learning about insects, pests, animals, trees, etc. She likes to help in our home garden now and tell her brother about insects and the names of trees.”
