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 spend half the day at the Farm. The rest of the day, campers get a chance to experience traditional camp activities.
