Ages 5-12 (in two groups, divided by age. Age groups are typically 5 – 8 and 8 – 12, but may vary depending on overall age range of Adventure Campers in a specific session)

Adventure Camp is only offered in two-week blocks. This longer camp session allows a group of campers to make stronger friendship connections and enjoy a wider range of favorite camp activities! If you need individual weeks of camp and a two-week block does not work for your schedule, please see SPROUTS CAMP, SAPLINGS CAMP, AMAZING ANIMALS CAMP, COOKING CAMP, or RANGERS CAMP.

Creative play and active exploration are the starting point for each week of Adventure Camp. Fort building, nature arts, wading in the stream, and caring for farm animals are typical weekly activities. Camper favorites also include making pizza from the farm, picking blueberries, silly songs at Morning Meeting, and day-long adventures in the woods with a picnic lunch by Lake Wintergreen! Special themed days will follow seasonal events of the farm and forest and can include making snacks from the garden, hiking in West Rock and climbing through Judge’s Cave, seeking and learning about bugs, following wildlife signs in the woods, or a day full of chicken themed activities!

Our Adventure Camp teachers are professionals who have lots of experience with early childhood education and lots of enthusiasm for outdoor play and exploration. Teachers are assisted by a college-aged intern and high school student counselors. For campers ages 5 – 8, groups are joined by junior counselors (13+ year old volunteers), so we have lots of helpers available to read stories, make art projects, tie shoes, fill water bottles, or hold hands on a hike! Please see the “Frequently Asked Questions” page for more details on the qualifications of our camp staff.

Camper/Staff ratio: One adult camp teacher and one camp counselor for every 12 children (6:1 child to staff ratio, not including interns or Junior Counselors).

All campers receive a camp tshirt and water bottle. Camp hoodies are available for purchase when you register (optional).
