KID'S FARM CAMP

At Emerald Hill Farm we strive to bring fun and farm education to young children through our summer camp programs. We value teaching children about gardening, life cycles of chickens, goat milking, farm animal care, facts about the animals on our farm and much more. 

Each camp week is spent doing hands-on activities with each of the animals around our farm as well as a special farm themed lesson each morning. We enjoy a quiet, relaxing break from the sun while we gather in our little barn for story time. Children create fun arts and crafts throughout the week, some they bring home and some we share with the farm animals. We dedicate time for free play each day and host water play day on Fridays. 

 Our goal for each week is that children take away knowledge of farm life, form great camp friendships and have the eagerness to return to camp again the following year!
