Summer Camp
June/July
2010

This unique summer farm program takes place on the grounds of Ambler Farm, a historic and sustainably run community farm in Wilton. This is an excellent opportunity for your child  to experience farm life. Kids will not only learn about the plants in our educational gardens, but also have opportunities to work in the gardens. Spending time with our sheep, Nutmeg and Clover, is a favorite activity as well as checking to see if our chickens have laid eggs. Baby chicks, rabbits and visiting animals provide engaging opportunities for kids to interact and learn about animals. The week is sure to include woodworking, hayrides, planting, harvesting, hands on projects, animals, cooking, and more! Kids will be divided by grade levels for appropriate grade level activities.  Each week will consist of different activities.

  1. Hi,

    I recently came across your program for summer camp and was wondering what the latest date is for being accepted for the programs.
    I have a 9 year old son who I believe would love your camp, but cannot commit to any week as of now.

    We are probably looking at the very end of July.

    Thank you, Kathy

    • Kathy,
      I heard back from the folks at Ambler. Here’s their response: “Generally we can fit people in for the regular program if they sign up later in the season. The preschool age program is limited and has been booked up well in advance the past two years.”

      Hope this helps.
