Farm Camp 
at Turkey Hill
HOME PAGEUnique_Maine_Farms.html

The Farm Camp at Turkey Hill Farm (for children ages 4-10) teaches environmental literacy through guided exploration in a variety of habitats. The campers grow, harvest, and eat organic vegetables, feed and care for farm animals, and learn through nature based-literature, and child-centered, fun activities.


 Children work and play in small groups of twelve and are led by a teacher and an assistant. The schedule focuses us daily on four topics, including: (1) the garden, (2) farm animals, (3) forest habitats, and (4) pond life.


Also, each day children do farm chores. Popular activities throughout the summer include:


  1. hunting for frogs

  2. building fairy houses

  3. reading a chapter from Charlotte’s Web

  4. collecting eggs

  5. digging up potatoes

  6. making zucchini muffinsee

  7. playing in the bean pole teepee
