Parent Testimonials: 

“Our daughter loved it. We’re new to the camp experience and this exceeded our expectations.”

“My daughter asked to go back to Chestnut Hill Farm Camp again next summer. She made and brought home crafts and food that she made. She was an absolute dirty mess when I picked her up and underneath all the dirt was a huge smile! She was in a happy place and that makes me happy! Well done Chestnut Hill Farm Camp! Teaching kids about taking care of nature and teaching them life skills to take care of themselves and others.”

“I just want to express my gratitude for this camp experience. My son said this is the best camp ever! He has never felt so accepted and liked in a camp before! All of the counselors are so kind and nice.”

Parent Testimonials

Two of my boys went and it was the first camp experience for my youngest. He was really nervous the first day, but by Wednesday he told me he wanted to go again and this time could do it without his big brother!

– Camp Parent

Great counselors, fun activities. We felt extra safe with both the camp’s COVID precautions and the extra steps taken during really hot days.

– Camp Parent

The children loved the activities and the freedom to roam and play and really get hands-on with nature. The counsellors were enthusiastic and gave the kids lots of freedom, without unnecessary rules and regulations. Having said that, they ensured the kids were safe at all times. Ideal camp.
