WildQuest Camps at Prescott Farm is entering its 18th year of opening the doors to the natural world to your children with our school vacation and summer camps – and registration for our 2018 camps is now open!

WildQuest Spring Camp is Monday, April 23 – Friday, April 27, 2018, from 9:00am – 4:00pm; with extended day available from 8:00am – 5:30pm, for an additional fee. Spring is here and it’s time for mud, new green shoots, and salamanders as the Earth re-awakens. There are so many changes happening this time of year—what an exciting time to get outside and explore the forest, fields and gardens at Prescott Farm, for campers aged 5-12. Activities include ponding & vernal pool exploration; garden projects; nature walks; bird watching & insect collecting; and arts & crafts (all weather dependent). Spaces for WildQuest Spring vacation camp are available for the full week or on a daily basis: $235/week or $47/day ($185/week or $37/day for Members). Registration deadline is April 13th, 2018.

Give your children an unforgettable summer camp experience discovering the natural world around them! Our Summer day camp program includes nature activities, animal and plant identification, arts and crafts, Quests, games, and hands-on learning. Most of the day is spent outdoors and each week will feature an all-camp hands-on project related to the theme of the week, for campers aged 4-14; including half-and full-day programs for 4- and 5-year-olds, and a Leadership in Training Program for campers 13-14 years old. You can register for one week, or multiple weeks: $235 per week ($185 for Members), with additional early bird discounts through April 15, 2018. Registration deadline is May 25th, 2018.

“I am so excited to be embarking on my first year of directing WildQuest Summer Camp,” says Kate Banyas, Camp Director, who joined Prescott Farm in September 2017. “We have some really exciting activities planned, a couple of new themed weeks, extended full-day options for campers ages 4 and 5 years old, as well as a newly re-designed Leadership in Training Program for our older campers, ages 13 and 14. We are ready to show your kids the wonders of the natural world here at Prescott Farm this summer!”
