fullsizeoutput_bcf.jpeg

A farm and forest day camp for ages 7-12.

  • July 9 - August 17, 2018
  • Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm (after care available until 5pm for $20/wk)
  • Camp Fee: $125/wk. Scholarships available for qualifying Danby campers.
  • One-week enrollment options available.

Our camp program explores the forests and the Community Farm at Smokey House Center, with a mix of guided activities as well as less structured time for exploration and discovery. Campers build huts, pick flowers, look for bugs, grow and eat food from the garden, watch birds, chase frogs, play games, and generally spend their week outdoors. No handheld electronic devices, no screens, just a summer full of farm and forest fun. Camps are led by a skilled adult leader with youth leaders serving as assistants.
