Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, Farm Day Camp, Pocantico Hills

in Specialty Camps, Traditional Camps

Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture is 80 rolling acres of field, gardens, pastures and woods in Pocantico Hills, New York, where rich traditions of community-based farming are merging with the 21st century. Stone Barns Center’s Farm Camp is entering its eighth season. Camp sessions are designed for rising first graders through rising eighth graders. Our campers have the opportunity to see how the farm works and get their hands dirty by pitching in with farm chores and learning alongside our farm staff. In addition to activities focused on a specific theme, every camp session includes garden work, animal chores, cooking, crafts, games and hiking. At Farm Camp, we also explore the farm-to-table connection. A staff cooking specialist helps campers prepare healthy snacks several times each week, and older campers cook a full lunch together in a professional kitchen. Space is limited. Please register early! For more information, please contact Meghan Ryan, Camp Director: farmcamp@stonebarnscenter.org, or 914 366 6200 x111.
