Community Connections Programs

Prescott Farm is dedicated to providing year-round environmental education programs for all ages and a place in the Lakes Region community that encourages curiosity, discovery, fun and connection to the natural world.

WildQuest Day Camps

Our nature-themed WildQuest Day Camps offer children ages 4-14 the opportunity to explore, learn, and grow in nature through Quests, arts & crafts, games and activities.

Get Involved

As a non-profit organization, Prescott Farm depends on donors, community business partners, members, volunteers and guests to help us carry out our mission to provide the New Hampshire Lakes Region with high-quality environmental education.

Fledglings Preschool

Fledglings Nature-Based Preschool at Prescott Farm is a fully licensed program offering children ages 3 – 5 the educational foundation they need to succeed in school while awakening in each child a natural curiosity and respect for nature.

Plan a Visit

Unplug, relax and explore our 160 acres of field, forest and gardens on our 3+ miles of nature trails and Natural Playscape, open 365 days per year from dawn until dusk.

What they say about us

The traditional farm skills and wildlife habitat lessons taught and demonstrated in a natural environment by the staff nurtures and stimulates involvement by the children beyond anything they might experience elsewhere. It’s just rewarding to be involved, though even in such a small way, when you can see the results first hand.

The past few years as volunteers at Prescott Farm, Janice and I have been enriched with the opportunity to introduce youngsters to a dairy goat while experiencing the wonder and curiosity of the children as many meet face to face with their first farm animal.

We’ve enjoyed helping during both Harvest and Winter public events almost as much as reveling in the excitement as our grandchildren share what they’ve learned and enjoyed most at the end of each day at ‘camp’ during the drive home.
