Welcome to Drumlin Farm Camp!

Drumlin nature campers playing in mud

At Drumlin Farm Camps in Lincoln and Sudbury, campers ages 4–18 develop an appreciation for nature. Campers gain confidence and comfort in the natural world and understand the interconnectedness among people, land, and wildlife.

Our programs encourage campers to explore local habitats while connecting them to the joys and wonders of the natural landscape. Campers engage through crafts, games, songs, cooking, and hands-on activities specific to the site. Each of our three locations offer unique educational opportunities stemming from their differing landscapes.

Campers ages 4–18 experience life on a working farm and wildlife sanctuary as they care for farm animals, practice sustainable farming, discover the science behind nature, and observe native wildlife. Learn More >

We design our camp around the pillars of community, interdependence, and stewardship, and hope that each camper ends their day having learned something new. Our goal is to create and facilitate lifelong connections with nature that create responsible stewards of our planet. Learn More >

Our camp staff are a diverse group of naturalists, teachers, and college students who want more than a summer job. They are thoroughly trained and well prepared for the shifting nature of a day at camp. Our counselors exhibit an enthusiasm for outdoor education, a love of the natural world, and a desire to build a strong, cohesive, and inclusive community. Learn More >
