School’s Out! Let’s Head to Camp!
When school is out head to Evergreen! Our camps are about fun, friends and learning and our experienced staff love exploring Evergreen’s 130 acres with the campers. However, this year, due to COVID-19 we also pledge to follow the Governor’s health guidance regarding ten participants or less and social distancing wherever possible. The gardens, orchards, pond, forest and streams are the perfect place for kids to meet the farm in a safe outdoor learning environment. Many of our campers come back year after year, building a life-long attachment to this very special place.
Children can enroll in five summer discovery camps: Arts in the Outdoors, Science Discovery, Young Naturalist, and Grow it Cook it Camp! New this year our Appalachian Adventure camp for campers entering grades 6-10.
