Nature Based Programs

Our facilities open directly on to 47-acres of farm, forest, wetlands, gardens and woods. Children can have adventures on the farm discovering plants and trees and the animals of the preserve. Our Nature Playscape provides opportunities for digging, playing in the mud, building with natural materials and creating make believe in the little actors' amphitheater.  As a part of the Camel’s Hump Farm community, we also interact with environmental experts including educators, artists, the land stewardship team, and naturalist staff.

Experiential Learning




Hands-on, experiential learning is the heart of our program. Our curriculum is inspired by nature, the children’s curiosity, and  their inclination to learn through play. Young children develop social skills, cognitive abilities, physical strength, and coordination. We support our children in experimenting and learning through trial and error.


Children will have the opportunity to engage in learning through:

Thematic Nature Experiences

Environmental Education Concepts

Block Building

and Construction

Dramatic and Imaginative Play

Sensory Expoloration

Reading and  Literacy Connections

Drawing and Writing



Music and Movement

Meaningful Math and Science
