 What Previous Parents Are Saying About Farm Camp

“This was, by far, my son’s favorite camp of the summer. His experience was incredible. The counselor to child ratio was perfect. I would not suggest going much larger with group size as the hands on experience may get lost. It was so wonderful to have our son come home and talk about all of the exciting activities that he was part of AND all of the incredible knowledge that he took away. Granted, we are not going out and adopting a pig or a goat…at this time OR making a bee hive, but we are embracing the excitement and encouraging the continued exploration into agriculture, farming and nature.”

Each day introduces the campers to different aspects of the multi-faceted industry we call agriculture including, farm safety, basic gardening, bees, goats, rabbits, chickens, horses, eggs, canning, and even tractor driving. No camp would be complete without its share of fun games and crafts, and Farm Camp was no exception. Campers competed in farm olympics as well as other farm themed games and physical activities such as farm yoga – and went home every day with something they made with their own two hands like a salad box, goat’s milk fudge, seed bombs, and homemade peach jam.

Farm Camp is a partnership that draws on the expertise and contributions of many within the local agricultural community including UMD Extension, the Baltimore County 4-H Goat and Rabbit Clubs, Timberbrook Farm, the Central Maryland Beekeepers Association, Master Gardeners, Finch Inc., Greenfields Nursery, as well as committed volunteers. MARC is so grateful to everyone who played a role in the success of this endeavor.
