Our Philosophy

Camel's Hump Farm Nature Center's Mission

Our Mission is to provide the highest level of quality early childhood care possible to children of all learning abilities emphasizing the importance of creativity, investigation and learning through hands-on experience.


Camel's Hump Farm Nature Center opens directly onto our 135-acre nature preserve, giving children a unique opportunity to explore and learn about their relationship to the natural world in a risk-managed environment.
