For Kids & Families

Appleton Farm Camp, Ipswich

Farm + Nature Camp on an historic working farm.

Camp 2022 Registration Will Open on January 13 for Trustees Members

Monday-Friday 9am-3pm

With rolling grasslands, grazing livestock, vegetable gardens, active barnyard, and historic buildings, Appleton Farms offers a uniquely immersive experience. We introduce campers to Appleton’s working farm and adventurous landscape through exciting and educational activities. Supported by an extraordinary team of talented and compassionate educators, each day at Farm Camp is infused with a special sense of wonder, new friendships, and a whole lot of fun.

Every day campers enjoy these activities and more as they connect to the natural world and their place within it:

  • Performing essential barnyard chores like feeding, mucking stalls, and collecting eggs
  • Planting, watering, and weeding veggies, flowers, and herbs in the Learning Garden
  • Cooking and tasting delicious seasonal foods from ingredients campers help to grow
  • Hiking adventures throughout our enchanting forest, fields, and trails
  • Farm-themed arts & crafts and science experiments
  • Games, songs, and free play in the great outdoors!

Our place-based practice is inspired by this exceptional property while building on The Trustees’ expertise in nature conservation, historic landscapes, regenerative agriculture, and culinary education.

Appleton Farms Camp Parent Testimonials

This was our daughter‘s first time at camp, and she absolutely loved it. She wants to do it again and says she wants to be a counselor there some day.   

– Appleton Farms Camp Parent

Our son loved being a Sprout at Appleton Farm Camp. The counselors were fantastic, so friendly and kind.  We have a shy kid and he still made friends, even with masks on! 

– Appleton Farms Camp Parent

Summer 2020 was a wonderful experience for my child. I so appreciate both the organization effort to make this happen, despite the challenges, and the warmth and talent of the counselors.
