The Montclair History Center, Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H, and the Montclair Community Farms partner each year to host a fun, nature, and history-filled camp for youth to learn about Montclair’s past and where our food comes from.
Farm Camp supports youth development by promoting a positive interest in nature, historical living, and agriculture. Their mission is to provide the best camp experience for youth, while also providing a beneficial learning experience about food, animals, our earth, and its agricultural past.
Campers have the chance to be in the garden each day and participate in activities related to each age level’s theme. Campers will spend their days on-site at the Montclair History Center (108 Orange Road), where they will have access to the Montclair Community Farms, historic houses, and large open spaces!
Camps run from 9 am to 12:30 on the following dates: June 26th – 30th; July 10th – 14th;
July 24th – 28th; August 7th – 11th; August 21st – 25th Camp is for children ages 6-11 or who have completed a year of kindergarten by June 1st, 2023. For families in need of financial assistance, camperships (scholarships) are available.
