Our Farm Camps focus on our 62-acre farm: join us as we dive headfirst into learning about what a farm is, who lives on the farm, and how it all works. We’ll visit, care for and experience the farm animals, participate in hands-on farm-related projects and crafts, see and use tools and equipment used on the farm, play games and explore the landscape at and around the farm. This camp will be based out of the Sap House, within easy access of the farm and Page Pond.
Farm Crew Camp participants will experience the farm’s inhabitants and processes, learning about all the moving parts of a farm while participating in team-building activities, developing practical skills using tools, engaging in service-learning projects and farm activities, and learning about the daily care and stewardship of a farm through hands-on experiences. Crew members will do animal chores, harvest and use farm products, and create and construct farm structures as they learn, work, and explore at Merck’s working farm.
