Young kids ponding during April Vacation Week


Registration opens every February

Celebrate the coming of spring as the farm comes alive with adventure! Help with farm chores and meet our animals, search for signs of spring, in forest, field, and wetland, learn about traditional New England growing and cooking practices, and more. Vacation Week campers can look for salamanders, plant a seed to take home, and uncover mysteries from the pond as winter survivalists start to emerge. April Vacation is the perfect time to release the pent up winter energy by exploring the emerging outdoor landscape.

Sign up for single-day sessions or all four! Suitable for children in Pre-K through Grade 8.
