The FARM Institute’s land, plants, and animals provide countless opportunities for campers to learn about teamwork, environmental stewardship, math, science, the arts, carpentry, and more. The possibilities are endless! We pride ourselves in offering a unique farm camp experience that will connect your child with the land that surrounds and supports us. We hope you’ll join hundreds of past and present TFI Camp Families and, as we like to say, “Lettuce grow your mind!”
Every day, campers enjoy these activities and more as they connect to the natural world and their place within it:
Visit animal friends with a caregiver! Attendees will enjoy stories, games, wagon rides, crafts, animal feedings, egg collecting, and all sorts of fun weeding and harvesting in the Friendship Garden. One adult per child.
Farmer for a Day
An afternoon of farm fun for families, or drop-off for ages 6+. Grab your boots to get up close with all the farm animals, help collect eggs, or harvest in the garden!
Our place-based educational practice is inspired by this exceptional property while building on The Trustees’ expertise in nature conservation, historic landscapes, regenerative agriculture, and culinary education.
All programs will follow the 2022 Massachusetts State guidelines for COVID-19.

My child LOVED the new experiences and empowerment of completing farm chores, cooking, creating crafts, and learning new farm knowledge!

My camper was excited to go to camp each day and was sad when it was over. That is a very telling sign of a great week! Thank you for offering my son such a wonderful experience.
