Farm Camp

Farm Camp 2024 registration is now open!

At Farm Camp, kids engage in hands-on learning immersing them in sustainable agriculture and the environment. From caring for livestock, tending (and tasting) what is in our gardens, and exploring our surrounding ecosystems, campers fill their days with discovery. While emphasizing play, exploration, and farm-based activities, campers will try new things, gain confidence, and grow in their individual relationship with farming and food. 

Our nonprofit educational farm is located just five miles from downtown Freeport, Maine and I-295.

2024 School Vacation Camps

We invite kids in grades K-5 to spend their school vacations learning, exploring, and having fun at Wolfe’s Neck Center! We will take care of and visit our animals, cook, play in our forests, and so much more. Campers can sign up for a single day, a few days, or the full session.

Our youngest campers are introduced to farming and the natural world by spending a half-day in either the morning or afternoon at camp. Each week, campers will participate in a variety of focused activities, learning more about our farm and garden. They will meet our animals, taste vegetables growing in our garden, and explore and play in the forest or coast. Our staff nurture a sense of wonder and enthusiasm about all the plants and animals that call our farm home.

Activities may include collecting and dissecting eggs, preparing a salad with harvested greens, making butter, and snuggling our sheep. The Peapods will have the chance to play and learn alongside the older campers during afternoon Choice Time where campers choose from a handful crafts, games, or exploration-based activities.

Daily chores may include caring for more of our livestock, turning the compost, and picking harmful insects out of our production fields. Seedlings will venture to farther reaches of the farm and develop a deeper understanding of our fruit and vegetable production and dairy practices. While we ask our Seedlings to have more responsibility in the day to day care of our plants and animals, there will be plenty of time spent playing, exploring, and discovering.

Farm Kids (Ages 10-11)

Spots available some weeks.
Weeks 4, 5 & 9- FULL Waitlist Only

Additionally, in the creative tradition of Farm Camp they will try their hand in farm processes such as pickling, cheese making, and wool crafts. While enjoying a higher level of responsibility on the farm and participating in Farm Improvement Projects, Farm Kids also take time to be fully immersed in classic Farm Camp fun. 

Full Day Programming Only (9:00am – 4:00pm) I $325 per week

Farmward Bound (Ages 12-13)

FULL- Waitlist Only


Farmward Bound campers immerse themselves in our farm production through meaningful projects in our fields and with our livestock. They will learn more about our sustainable farming practices and participate in the many steps it takes to go from farm to table. The group will expand their exploration of Wolfe’s Neck during a weekly excursion to Wolfe’s Neck State Park.  These campers can participate in an optional one-night overnight on the farm, typically held Thursday into Friday. During the overnight, campers will visit our dairy barn during milking hours to see the process, cook themselves dinner using farm products, play games, and enjoy having the farm to themselves. We provide tents and some other gear and will work with families to ensure each camper has what they need to participate. More details about the overnight will be provided prior to your camper’s week. 

*Farmward Bound will NOT be happening during Weeks 6 and 7 (July 22nd to August 2nd). Instead, we will be hosting a new cooking program for campers ages 12-15. 

Full Day Programming with One Optional Overnight (9:00am – 4:00pm) I $400 per week 

C.H.E.F. (Ages 12-15):

FULL- Waitlist Only


Cook. Harvest. Eat. Farm! This group of campers will transform into farm-based chefs over the course of their week here. They will get a closer look at what it takes to produce the food we eat – visiting and working in our gardens and vegetable fields and harvesting produce. They will then take to the kitchen to learn how to prepare what was picked, the basics of knife and food safety, and different cooking techniques. Whether campers come in with cooking experience or are total novices, our goal is for each one to leave a little more comfortable in the kitchen and with a better understanding of farm to table.  

*This program is only taking place during Weeks 6 and 7 (July 22nd to 26th  & July 29th – August 2nd). 

Full Day Programming Only (9:00am – 4:00pm) I $400 per week



Our Counselor-in-Training program is designed for 14-year-olds ready to step up and lean more about leadership in a camp setting. Through activities with other CITs, collaboration with Junior Counselors (JCs), and hands-on experiences with younger campers, CITs will start to develop skills to be positive role models at camp. Through this program, CITs will be trained in valuable skills and knowledge during short workshops on topics such as behavior and group management, safety, and motivating campers.

*This program is only taking place during weeks 4 and 5 (July 8th – July 19th)

Full Day from 9:00am to 4:00pm | $100 per week

In case of an emergency, CITs will be treated as campers due to rules we follow with our Youth Camp License. Because of this, there must be a fee associated with the CIT program.

Junior Counselors (Ages 15-18)

Our Junior Counselor (JC) program is designed for passionate, mature, and responsible high school students (ages 15-18) looking to gain hands-on leadership experience working with younger children, while learning about sustainable agriculture and local ecologyJCs balance their days outside assisting camp staff with activities and working as a cohort with a Junior Counselor Leader. Each day, they will also spend some time cultivating the necessary tools to become effective leaders in a camp setting, reflecting on scenarios from the week, and participating in some JC-only activities. The JC program is a volunteer learning opportunity for individuals who are comfortable working outdoors in a farm environment. Participants can choose one or two week-long sessions, with two consecutive weeks being preferred.

How do I know if my child is ready to attend Farm Camp and how does Farm Camp staff support individual needs?

Outlined below are some basic skills that help campers have a successful week at camp, as they work through transitions, are part of a group, and deal with a new routine. Our goal is for all campers to have fun and receive the support they need to have a good week. We hire incredible staff and can accommodate and work with most campers of varying abilities and needs. We are limited in our capacity to meet severely challenging behaviors and unable to provide one-on-one services with camp staff. Hopefully, this list can help determine whether or not your child is ready for Farm Camp here. 

  • Campers use basic or are starting to use basic and safe coping mechanisms following an event that causes frustration, sadness, anger, or other big emotions. 
  • Campers are able to ask for help and communicate their basic needs. 
  • Campers stay with their group throughout the day with minimal reminders. 
  • Campers can follow basic verbal directions. 
  • Campers manage their basic personal hygiene without assistance. This includes toileting and hand washing. 
  • Campers demonstrate basic, age-appropriate social and emotional skills such as managing personal boundaries, communication of needs, and peaceful conflict resolution.  

Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office (207-865-4469 ext. 101) to discuss your campers’ specific needs, how we can accommodate them, or if you are still unsure if Farm Camp would be a good fit. We are very much willing to do what is reasonably within our capacity, while ensuring the health and safety of all of camp, to help your camper have a safe and successful week. 


How does Farm Camp staff support our campers? 

  • Staff provide age-appropriate support and can help campers work through big emotions, difficult moments, and collaborate with campers to develop peaceful conflict resolution if needed. 
  • Staff support individual campers and groups with transitions using facilitation techniques that may include visual schedules, verbal reminders, and positive affirmations. 
  • Staff allow campers choice when possible and safe for the group and individual and recognizing that participation and engagement looks different for all campers. 

What Farm Camp cannot provide: 

  • Extensive behavioral support that requires continuous 1:1 attention to a camper 
    • If your child receives 1:1 support at school they typically need and benefit from 1:1 support at camp as a new environment, new people, and new routine can be overwhelming. WNC Farm Camp staff cannot provide 1:1 services, but can accommodate outside supports when provided by parents, school, or a third party service. 
  • We is not able to accommodate severe medical conditions requiring treatment beyond the scope of our camp medical staff as outlined in our Standing Orders prescribed by our Camp Doctor. We are very much willing to figure out a creative solution for your camper to receive the medical care they need while at camp. If you have questions regarding our ability to support your camper and their medical needs at camp, please contact us at 207-865-4469 ext. 101. 
Farm Camp Attire & Packing List

What does my camper need to wear to camp? 

Campers should wear weather appropriate clothing and CLOSED TOED SHOES. Because our day includes campers being up close with our animals, working in our fields with tools, and being in spaces with or near animal poop, it is important to fully protect feet. We also encourage your camper to pack extra clothing such as a change of socks, extra layers, hats, jackets, and waterproof clothing. 


What does my camper need to bring to camp? 

  • Water Bottle 
  • Lunch and lots of snacks (½ day Buds do not need a lunch) 
    • Please ensure each child has multiple nut-freesnacks and a lunch packed with them every day. Keep in mind, your campers will be physically active throughout the day, maybe more so than they are used to, so extra snacks are necessary!   
  • Full Change of Clothes (just in case!) 
  • Extra Layers 
    • Please prepare your campers with extra layers (such as a fleece), rain gear (rain jacket, rain boots, rain pants), a change of socks, a hat, etc. 
  • Sunscreen and Bugspray  
    • We ask that you apply sunscreen and bug spray to your child prior to drop off and send your camper with their own sunscreen and bug spray for re-application throughout the day. Please try to send sunscreen that your camper can apply with minimal assistance. 
  • Medications 
    • If your child requires any medication(s) administered during program time, please bring unexpired medications in original prescription bottles, labeled by the prescriber or pharmacist, and alert your counselor. Any medications brought in non-prescription bottles will not be accepted. Medications include inhalers, diabetic supplies, EpiPens, etc. 
    • A more detailed communications about medications and health information (including over-the-counter medications) will be sent out before your camper’s session. 
  • Books and Journals (optional) 
    • Campers are encouraged to bring a book or a journal for Rest And Digest time after lunch. We also have books to borrow, or campers can listen to staff reading aloud.   

What not to bring? 

  • Cell Phones 
  • Toys and stuffed animals – We are outside all day and frequently around animals and dirt. These items often get dirty, broken, or lost.  This can cause unnecessary conflict between our campers and strife when toys get messed up. We have plenty of things to play with at camp! 
Farm Camp Schedule

What is the general daily schedule at Farm Camp? 

Please note:  

  • Bathroom breaks and transitions are built into this schedule although not listed. 
  • This schedule is subject to change based on weather, exciting or unique events that come up on the farm, and the individual needs of each group. 

**Farmward Bound & C.H.E.F. will vary from the above schedule. 


Schedule for Morning & Afternoon Buds Program: 

Morning Session 


Afternoon Session 


Day to Day Farm Camp Information

Is your program the same each week? 

Yes & No. Our program generally follows the same schedule from week to week and covers similar topics. Each morning, groups will participate in ‘Farm Focus Time’ where they will dive deeper into different farm areas including our gardens, animals, and fields. Themes will repeat every two weeks and while activities will remain the same week to week, there will also be some variation in what groups do during this time. The afternoons consist of Choice Time. More popular activities may repeat week to week, but there are consistently new choices and plenty of opportunities for repeat campers to intermingle and participate in something new. 


What are the First Aid resources at Farm Camp? 

The health and safety of your camper(s) is our top priority. Our staff are trained to be active observers of all campers and to maintain a safe group environment. We have specific ratios of staff to campers and tone setting takes place prior to all activities around our farm to establish safety expectations. We expect that your campers will listen to and respect our staff’s safety reminders and make choices that will keep their bodies as well as the rest of the group and our plants and animals safe. We also recognize that camp and our farm environment is a great place for campers to try new things and take risks within a controlled and safe setting with the encouragement and careful observation of our staff. 

Many of our Farm Camp staff are First Aid, CPR, or Wilderness First Aid certified and we typically have one or two certified lifeguards on staff. With trained staff, they are able to do the majority of the basic first aid we see on a day-to-day basis at camp. This training and the critical thinking skills that often come with the certifications, allow our staff to more easily recognize potential risks and facilitate their group in a way that minimizes hazards. 

We will also have a licensed medical professional on our summer staff who will treat the basic day-to-day first aid as well as treat and support all other medical issues that arise. Based on ME Health Department requirements for summer camps this person will be one of the following: Registered Nurse, Licensed Practical Nurse, an Emergency Medical Technician, or a Wilderness First Responder.  

Our camp office staff as well as many of our full-time staff hold First Aid/CPR certifications and the Farm Camp Manager has a Wilderness First Responder certification as well as Youth Mental Health First Aid certificate. 

Our staff is better able to meet your campers health and medical needs when we have all the information we need to take care of them while at camp. Please make sure you fill out our health form in its entirety 2 weeks prior to your camp session and/or call us with any questions or concerns. 


What happens if it is raining at camp? Or if it is very hot? 

Farm Camp is almost entirely outdoors, and that’s the fun of it!! Staff will monitor the weather and modify activities as needed to account for the health and safety of our campers. 

Our property has lots of sunny spots – good for plants and pastures, but more challenging for humans. Throughout the day, groups go off to shady areas, the woods, and the coast. Lunch and snack will be in the shade. In the event of extreme heat, we will utilize the Smith Center. We provide campers with fresh water throughout the day and opportunities to take a break. Please pack your camper with a water bottle, and they may refill it at any time! 

Because of the new Smith Center, we will not need to cancel camp during thunderstorms. Campers and staff will move activities indoors/under a covered space during inclement weather.  If there’s no thunder, we will be outdoors in the rain! Drop off and pick up locations may change in the event of inclement weather to ensure campers and their belongings stay dry. 

In the event of severe weather, we will be in contact via email first and then phone. 


How does camp drop off and pick up work? 

Camper pick up and drop off for all campers will occur at the picnic tables in front of the white Little River Farmhouse. For pick up, please bring an ID. We take the safety of campers seriously. You will be asked to present your ID to confirm with the Authorized Grown Up list (provided within your CampInTouch profile) before your camper is released from camp. 

Can my camper bike or walk to and from camp? 

Yes! We encourage car alternatives modes of transportation to camp! If you would like your camper to be able to bike or walk home themselves without an adult, you will need to fill out our bike/walk permission form giving your camper’s counselor permission to sign them in/out of camp. We ask that all campers arrive with an adult on the first day of camp. This form will be available in our Farm Camp Handbook that will be sent before the start of camp. 

Farm Camp Policies

Can my camper be bumped into a different age group? 

No. We organize our programs so campers within their respective age groups, based on their age as of June 1st, 2024. While your camper will be with their age group for parts of the day, they will also have time to participate in activities with other age groups throughout the day. 


Can my camper attend your program all summer long? 

No. We limit registration to four weeks per camper in order to allow more families to participate in our programs! 


What is the nut policy? 

Due to the increased prevalence of nut allergies, we have instituted a nut-free policy for Farm Camp. We do not serve nut products at camp and we ask all participants to refrain from bringing nuts or nut-related products to camp. 

However, due to the variety of programs, activities, and public visitors at Wolfe’s Neck Center, we cannot guarantee we are a nut-free facility for those with severe allergies. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your camper’s allergy needs or our policies. 


What is Farm Camp’s cancellation policy? 

Farm Camp tuition is due in full by June 1st. Additional late fees will accrue after that date.

If you need to cancel after June 1st due to extenuating circumstances, please contact us at 


What is Farm Camp’s camper cell phone policy? 

Please do not send your camper to Farm Camp with cell phones or other electronics. We want all our campers to be fully engaged and present with our programming. If you need to contact your camper or our office needs to contact you, we will use our office phones. Medical equipment is our only exception. Medical electronics must be checked in with our office/medical staff at the beginning of your camp week. 


What is Farm Camp’s behavior policy? 

We ask each child to participate (physically, mentally, and behaviorally) in creating a meaningful experience for themselves and others! Those who do not contribute to a safe, respectful, and inclusive learning environment will meet with the Farm Camp Manager to discuss concerns and work together to form a behavioral plan, and the child’s family will be notified. Any child who engages in threatening, intimidating, or intentionally harmful behavior toward any person or animal will be immediately removed from program activities. The family will be notified, and the child may be asked to leave Farm Camp. Tuition will not be refunded. 


Is there a fee for late pick up? 

Please make every effort to pick up your child on time. Pick up time is 4:00, unless you are a morning Bud, in which case your pick up time is 12:00. Families will be charged a $5.00 late fee if ten minutes late, and $1.00 for every minute thereafter (11 minutes or more). If you are late, we will use your late fee to appreciate our staff at the end of the program season. Thank you for your compliance and understanding. If you are running late, please contact the office at (207)865-4469 or if you are able.

I’m not sure which weeks I registered my campers in or if they are on the waitlist. How can I find that out? 

Once registered for camp, you can check your camper’s registration status by returning to your CampInTouch My Account home page. Click on Camper Information to view which weeks you are registered or waitlisted. 


What are the top tips and tricks when registering for Farm Camp? 

  1. Use a computer or large tablet, if possible, not a phone.  
  2. Make sure you have a reliable WiFi connection.
  3. Have the debit/credit card or echeck account you are going to use to pay for the deposit on hand. 
  4. Start with your youngest camper as those age groups typically fill up quicker than others. 
  5. Know the weeks you would like to sign up for beforehand. Communicate with Farm Camp friends before registration if trying to coordinate going on the weeks. 
  6. Have some back up weeks in case your first choice weeks are already full. 
  7. Instructions that appear during the registration process will say you must be a legal guardian to fill out the application. Wolfe’s Neck Center does not require only legal guardians to register campers, but you still MUST select “I am a legal guardian” EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT, for the system to process your registration. (Have the contact information for the child’s legal guardian available so you can add them later in the registration form.) 


I’m on the waitlist, what now? 

We do see movement in our waitlists, so we recommend staying on the list. If a spot becomes available, we will give you a call as soon as the space opens. Please note that occasionally spaces open the Monday of that week if another camper cancels for some reason. 

There is no way of knowing what number you are on the waitlist within your CampInTouch profile. If you would like to know, please send us an email at and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

By staying on the waitlist, you also remain in our Farm Camp Family system to receive news and updates before the general public for the following year. 

What else can we do at Wolfe’s Neck Center if we can’t wait to visit?

Wolfe’s Neck Center is free and open to the public every day from dawn to dusk. Wander through our animal barn, hike our trails, visit our vegetable plots and explore the rocky Maine coastline. We also offer activities designed to immerse visitors in food, farming, and reconnecting with nature. These include Family Programs, Tours, and Workshops like our popular Goat Hike, events, School Vacation Camps, and more. Join our newsletter mailing list for notification to get updates about happenings around the farm.

Other Information

Is there a discount on Camp for members? 

No. While we do not offer a discount on camp tuition for members, there are many other benefits of a Wolfe’s Neck membership. Perks include: early notification of Farm Camp registration opening, discounted family programs and workshops, members-only events, farm products discounts, and early access to our seasonal vegetable CSA. Farm Camp will be hosting more camp-specific events throughout the year for Farm Camp Families. Members will receive early notification and discounted or free registration. 


Why has the price of camp increased? 

We aim to keep our tuition to camp as low as possible in an effort to be accessible to more families. However, the cost of running camp continues to increase with high operating costs and improved wages for our counselors to fairly compensate them for the incredible efforts. We have scholarships available and please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or payment concerns.
