June 25-29—Outdoor Adventures (formerly known as “Survivor”)*
Back by popular demand for the 10th year in a row! We will spend the week outside learning wilderness survival skills that will prepare you for all kinds of outdoor experiences – and have some great adventures along the way! From primitive survival to modern gear, you will get a feel for how to start a fire, construct a shelter, stay safe in the woods, and lots more!

*This week is FULL for ages 6-12

July 2-6 – Young Naturalist
(Camp will take place on the 4th of July)
Are you curious about what is going on in the natural world? Every day we will explore different habitats, write and draw in our nature journals, take pictures, and add our group’s findings to Prescott Farm’s own epic field guide! This exciting week is sure to build your sense of place in the great outdoors! (Camp will take place on the 4th of July)

July 9-13 — NEW!  Creature Features*
From paws to feathers, scales and claws, get ready for a week of all things animals!  Discover how different animals talk, eat, move and play as we explore Prescott Farm’s ponds, forest and fields. Learn what makes each group of animals unique as you investigate animal adaptations. Make sure to bring your curiosity and a sense of wonder!

*This week is FULL for ages 4-12

 July 16-20 —Nature Artists *

Nature in itself is a work of art. For this week, campers should be ready to paint, move, sculpt, sketch, and explore! This camp will bring out the science- and nature-loving artist in you. We will learn how the beauty of nature inspired many historic naturalists, and how it helps promote environmental stewardship today. We will end the week with an art show to share our creations with family and friends!

* This week is FULL for ages 4-5

July 23-27 – Water, Water, Everywhere!
Let’s discover the wonderful world of water! We will explore Prescott Farm’s pond ecosystem and learn about the creatures that live there– big and small. Not only will we learn about water, but we will play in it too! From sprinklers, to slip-n-slides, and our popular 4th annual Water Olympics, this week is sure to be a splash!

July 30-August 3—Life on the Farm
Prescott Farm was a working farm for more than 200 years. Discover how to use old-school tools and dig deeper with our garden quests. Join us as we explore the history of the farm through hands-on activities including gardening, cooking, composting, spinning and dyeing yarn, and playing old-fashioned games.

August 6-10 —Eco-Kids
Have you ever wondered how we can take better care of the Earth? Through a variety of fun, hands-on “green” projects we will discover how we can each make a positive difference in our communities and our world.  Join us as we take reduce, reuse, and recycle to the next level!

 August 13-17 – Kids Can Cook!*

Who likes to eat?  Join us for a week of culinary exploration and experimentation as we learn to prepare wholesome, healthy food in new and fun ways.  In addition to producing tasty treats, cooking gives kids a sense of independence and helps to develop creative and critical thinking skills. Throughout the week kids will participate in various food-related activities that will culminate in a cooking “competition” with help from a local “celebrity” chef!

* FULL for Questers, ages 6-12

August 20-24 —A Little Bit of Everything*
It’s the last week of camp and we will be revisiting a bunch of our favorite activities from the summer…ponding, hiking, cooking, crafting, looking for animal signs and insects, fort building and more.  A great way to wrap up the summer!

*********************************************************************************************

Nurture your child’s nature connection and enroll them in one of our WildQuest Camps. We have been offering our WildQuest Day Camps for over 18 years! All camps take place during school vacations (February, April & June-August). Our camps are licensed by the State of NH and led by experienced environmental educators with the goal of fostering an appreciation and understanding of the natural and cultural history of Prescott Farm, and by extension, campers’ own special places as well.

A camp experience with us will enhance your child’s ecological awareness and provide fun learning opportunities in a community-minded and non-competitive atmosphere. Camp always includes nature activities, animal and plant identification, arts and crafts, quests, games, and hands-on learning. Most of the day is spent outdoors. Extended care can provide supervised playtime before and after regular camp hours.
