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.
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
Dramatic and Imaginative Play
Reading and Literacy Connections
Drawing and Writing
Music and Movement
Meaningful Math and Science
Camel's Hump Nature Center is open year-round and offers programs for summer camp, after school, Saturdays on the farm, Mom and me, home schoolers and scouts. We design programs appropriate for each group.
