NYC’s only Farm Camp was developed as a response to Covid in 2020 in partnership with Commonpoint Queens to help alleviate some of the isolation for New York City youth and their families. Through this unique 8-week summer experience, children learn where their food comes from and foster an appreciation for the environment and animal welfare. Farm programming includes Compost & Recycling Week, NYC History Week, Herbs & Flowers, Pollinator Week, Farm Fibers and culminates with the Design-Your-Own Farm activity. Campers enjoy specialized STEM learning on Queens Farm’s 47 acres, hayrides and an insider’s journey through the 2021 Amazing Maize Maze.
Registration is CLOSED for Summer 2021. Stay tuned for 2022 dates!
