Weir River Farm Camp (ages 5-11)

Welcome to Weir River Farm Camp in Hingham where your campers will be farmers for the week! Campers care for our barnyard animals by helping to feed, clean, and handle the animals. Campers spend time in the Children’s Garden learning about where food comes from by gardening and harvesting their own produce. Throughout the week, campers hike the adjacent natural habitats of Whitney and Thayer Woods and Turkey Hill. Exploration includes opportunities to encounter native wildlife and learn about and connect with the local environment. This camp is provides an ideal combination of fun and discovery of nature, conservation, agriculture, and farming. It includes hands-on interactive lessons, crafts, activities, games, and more!

Weir River Farm Teen Adventures (ages 12–14)
New this year! This advanced farm camp will help campers dive into why and how our farm operates. Alongside Trustees agriculture and camp staff, campers learn about the various stages of an animal’s time and function on the farm. They gain in-depth appreciation of the value of sustainable farming practices. They come to appreciate forest ecology and land conservation through hiking the adjacent Whitney and Thayer Woods and Turkey Hill. As potential educators of the future, they prepare to become counselors in training (CITs) by developing and leading their own group activities. And, of course, no camp would be complete without plenty of fun and games throughout the week!

Weir River Farm Teen Adventures Art & Nature Week (ages 12–14)

Welcome to the former studio of nature artist Polly Thayer Starr! This special one-week opportunity is for creative and curious teens who want to connect with Weir River Farm’s legacy. Our unique vantage point on the hill and expansive scenic landscape offers endless inspiration to explore the intersections of art and nature, as Starr did years ago. Campers will learn about various artists inspired by the flora and fauna around them. They’ll explore the adjacent Whitney & Thayer Woods and Turkey Hill, seasonal home of the Thayer family. On-site observation, sketching, and journaling will be complemented by individual and group art projects using natural and art materials.
