Summer Camp at the Farm inspires K-9 youth to engage in activities related to agriculture, animal science, nutrition, healthy living, and life skills on a 100 year old working farm. Rooted in the 4-H Positive Youth Development framework, our programs are designed to foster self-esteem, cooperation and respect. Our diverse staff of Cornell Cooperative Extension educators, counselors, and nurses lead campers in using their Hands to groom farm animals, their Heads to solve science problems, and their Hearts to make lasting friendships. Together, campers develop essential Health and self-care skills through gardening, cooking and physical recreation. Our campers enjoy fresh-air wagon rides, cooling off in sprinklers, learning how food grows, and caring for and handling animals. We use all the Farm has to offer including the Butterfly House, Backyard Farm, Nature Explore Classroom, Historic Almshouse Haybarn, and livestock pastures.
