Looking for something fun for your child to do over winter break? Check out Prescott Farm’s WildQuest Winter Camp for children ages 6-12. Camp will take place during school vacation week – February 22-26 from 9-3pm. Each day is filled with new and exciting adventures! You can register your child by the day or for the full week. Extended care is available.
It’s a special time of year—chilly and sparkly white outside, and there are so many fun things to do! Winter camp is one of our favorite programs—it has a “personality” that is so different from Spring and Summer camps because we see Prescott Farm from such a different perspective! Depending on the weather, the week will be a mix of: Animal tracking & Snowshoeing adventures, Sledding, Winter games such as “Weasels & Voles”, Snowcrafts such as building “quinzhees” or igloos, Going on a Winter Quest, Exploring the frozen pond, Winter-themed art & craft projects and Maple Sugaring. Each day there is something new and exciting to look forward to.
We have been offering our WildQuest Day Camps for over 15 years! All camps take place during school vacations (February, April & June-August). Our camps are licensed by the State of NH and led by experienced environmental educators with the goal of fostering an appreciation and understanding of the natural and cultural history of Prescott Farm, and by extension, student’s own special places as well. We believe that a camp experience with us will enhance your child’s ecological awareness and provide fun learning opportunities in a community-minded and non-competitive atmosphere. Camp always includes nature activities, animal and plant identification, arts and crafts, quests, games, and hands-on learning. Most of the day is spent outdoors. Extended care can provide supervised playtime before and after regular camp hours.
Prescott Farm is a non-profit organization that offers environmental education for all ages throughout the year including WildQuest camps, public programs, field trips, long-term partnerships with local elementary schools and NOW Fledglings Nature-Based Preschool. The 160 acre historic family farm features woodland and field trails, a “green” building with geothermal and solar energy systems, historic barns, an old-fashioned maple sugaring operation (during the month of March), heritage gardens, and forested pond. Prescott Farm is open year round, seven days a week from 9:00 – 4:00PM. It is free to come and go for a hike or explore the “green” building!
