The Hillside farm has been providing a unique learning experience for children since Hillside was founded in 1901. Exploring the interconnectedness of a farm and its environment, digging in a sustainable garden, knowing and being known by the animals, and gaining an appreciation for hard work and compassion will greatly enhanced each camper's own awareness and self-esteem. Campers will work on projects in the garden and greenhouse, preparing a healthy seasonal snacks from farm grown food and discuss the importance of caring for crops.
Through activities central to farming and sustainability, campers will experience the confidence-building benefits of working in teams to set goals and tackle problems.
Campers signed up for farm camp will spend the majority of the day at the farm. Mornings will be dedicated to the Farm Campers, and the second half of the day will include open program opportunities for the whole camp.
