Wilderness Day Camp for Rising 4-6th Graders

July 13 @ 9:00 am - July 17 @ 3:00 pm

children learning farm vermont

7/13 to 7/17. $250/child

Week-long summer day camp for kids going into Grades 4 – 6 in the fall. Children will explore, observe, and participate in hands-on acitivies as they explore the various wildlife that can be found around Merck Forest. Focus will be the wildlife that make their habitat at MFFC, including the forest, fields, and pond.

Children should be dressed for outdoor adventures and wet environments. They should bring a bag lunch (and perhaps a change of clothes?). Our woodland classroom — the new yurt — will be our forest base camp, and a Vermont-certified educator will be on the ground with the children.

The fun starts at 9am each morning and continues until 3pm. Pre-registration is required, and participation is limited, so please sign up [HERE] early. Fee: $250 per child.
