Camel's Hump Farm Summer Camps 2022

Covid-19 Summer Camp changes 

For more information please visit our 

Last year's camp was a great, fun introduction to the farm. This year we have the extraordinary opportunity to work with a Lenape Educator to step back in time and experience the estate the way the Lenape did. Storytelling will help to guide the Campers through lessons on Lenape culture. The Campers will learn firsthand to make games, track, hunt, fish, farm, forage, cook, build a wigwam, and make art and music while respecting the Lenape culture and customs. We will complete the summer with a family campout with storytelling by our Lenape Educator and a campers' exhibition of the skills that they have learned.

 

We look forward to sharing this very special summer camp with your children ‐ one that we hope will help to build great memories, strength, compassion, and connection.

 

This summer we are offering 10 weeks of programming beginning June 13 for children entering 1st grade through age 14. Full payment due 2 weeks before the camp session starts. Please review the camp manual for our refund policy
