Crown Point’s 115-acre ecology center and farm is a living classroom that awakens your child’s sense of wonder through lessons and activities rooted in ecology, agriculture, art, and the language arts. Campers explore and investigate the natural cycles of plants, animals and people on a farm through interdisciplinary, problem solving activities. This unique summer camp engages children in learning how a working organic farm and community supported agriculture program operates. Held in a historic barn, children will also learn about how to take care of chickens, play team building games, study bees at our bee hives, and create their very own farmer’s market to share fresh produce with their families.
