Welcome to Evergreen!

At Evergreen, we believe in Learning by Doing.  Using our 130-acre historic farm and surrounding forest as an outdoor classroom, we offer opportunities for hands-on learning about the world around us. Our abundant natural resources provide a meaningful place for children, youth, and adults to learn, grow, and thrive.

Summer Camp Registration Now OPEN!

Join us for our annual summer camps! With five full weeks of camp to choose from, there’s certainly something for everyone. Evergreen prides ourselves in maintaining a small staff to camper ratio (1:6; and no more than 1:8). Our full-day experiences will allow your children to blossom–from exploring our pond to creating the next masterpiece that will hang on the fridge at home. Evergreen’s camps allow children to develop their interests and skills, while providing a fun, easy-going atmosphere! For more information visit our Summer Camp Page.
