Farm & Garden Days
August 10-14, 2020
Farm and Garden Days is a small (60 participants), specialized, hands-on farm, garden & nature experience for children ages 5-13. Campers in this hands-on program focus on exploring Duryea Farm and the Pfeiffer Center’s biodynamic gardens on our campus.
Campers spend their time digging potatoes, picking peas, milking cows, visiting horses and honeybees, making pizza in an outdoor clay oven, and more – with plenty of time for swims, exploring nearby woods and streams, art activities, music and games. Please note that busing is available for this program from Manhattan and Brooklyn only.
Farm and Garden Days is a collaboration between The Nature Place and The Pfeiffer Center.
Camp hours are 9 am to 4 pm. Before and After Care are also available.
Campers divide their time between Duryea Farm (a dairy farm in operation since 1883), The Pfeiffer Center’s biodynamic gardens, and the surrounding fields, streams and forests.
