Drumlin Farm Camp | Wolbach Farm Program Descriptions & Hours
Wolbach Farm Camp
at Wolbach Farm, Sudbury
Wolbach Farm—a Sudbury Valley Trustees property—boasts 54 acres for campers to explore. One-week sessions center on sensory exploration of the natural world for campers entering pre-K to grade 1. This unique program plays on the interaction between human and wild as campers learn how the human landscape has folded into the natural one.
- Full Day: 8:30 am–3 pm
Get your hands dirty as you dig, discover, and play across Wolbach Farm! Use your senses to hear, smell, see, and feel the natural world. Build a house for a mouse, plant flowers for a butterfly garden, and meet one of our captive wild animals up close!
What do squirrels like to snack on? How does a coyote find dinner? Search Wolbach Farm for signs of hungry critters as you figure out what animals eat and how they find and store their food. There is no camp on July 4.
How does an acorn grow into an oak tree? How does a butterfly choose where to lay its eggs? Discover nature’s incredible transformations as you follow how trees, amphibians, and bugs move through their unique life cycles.
Spend the week discovering the science of nature! How do seeds germinate? Why does compost help plants grow? How do bugs and birds fly through the air? Learn all of this and more through hands-on experiments and exploration.
Slither like a snake, camouflage like a chameleon, and hide like a turtle. Learn how to survive as a cold-blooded animal and which reptiles live in New England. Bask in a week full of reptile activities, crafts, games, and explorations!
July 30–August 3
Nature can be so noisy! Listen for the call of birds, the croak of frogs, and the buzz of insects. How are the sounds of nature different for each habitat? Learn why animals make noise and how to create your own animal sounds. Come together to form our very own camp animal orchestra!
Color By Nature
Look high and low in search of the rainbow! Explore Wolbach’s fields and forests to find plants, animals, and an array of colors. Discover what colors mean in nature and bring the colors you find back to the barn for games, crafts, and activities.
