STEAM Summer Camp at Phillies Bridge
Weekly Camps: June 26 – August 25, 2023
9 am – 3 pm
Ages 5 – 12
Discounts and scholarships available
This year’s camp season will continue to be focused around our popular farm-centered STEAM curriculum. Each week of farm camp will contain the core elements of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) and will be based on seasonal topics with a focus on agriculture and environmental stewardship. Our daily activities will include visits with the farm animals, growing food in the gardens, and loads of fun playing games, hiking our nature trail, and exploring the farm. The farm experience will be supplemented by an exploration into the connectedness of the natural systems that surround us, with hands-on crafts and experiments, including an exploration into the tenants of our food justice program, and how we grow and donate food to those in need. Each week will be different, based on seasonal availability of crops and wildlife, but will offer the same core values. You can feel free to choose the weeks that work best for your schedule and rest easy knowing that our nurturing staff will provide a fun and educational experience!

You do not have to be a science buff to enjoy STEAM camp, as our activities are generally as creative as they are scientific, and much of our day at camp is spent exploring the farm, including our discovery garden with edible herbs, flowers, and berries, our education garden (a mini version of the working Phillies Bridge CSA), and our 1.5 mile nature trail that winds through the wooded 60 acres of protected land that is part of PBFP.
Camps are open to ages 5-12. Children are grouped by age for a portion of the day and also come together as a whole for community activities and games. We have a low ratio of one camp counselor for eight campers, and oftentimes it is less. This ensures your child gets all the attention they need.
