When is Farm Camp?

Farm Camp runs for three weeks in July. 2020 Farm Camp runs from July 6 - July 24.

What will kids do at Farm Camp?

Campers participate in a host of activities at the MCS Farm. Examples include farm chores and gardening; baking pizza in our outdoor wood-fired oven; preparing ice cream with the Farm’s own naturally raised eggs, milk and yogurt; and preparing meals with our own beef, pork and chicken and organic vegetables.

For recreation, campers take part in daily activities such as swimming at a nearby lake, roller skating, an overnight camp out and weekend trips to a water park, the Clark Sports Center and museums.

Who works at Farm Camp?

Farm Camp is operated by the MCS Farm staff, the Farm Camp teacher, the farm-based education intern and the MCS Farm alumni intern.

What is the cost of Farm Camp?

Like MCS' student tuition, rates for Farm Camp are calculated on a sliding scale. 2020 Farm Camp rates are available in the Farm Camp application.

How do I register my child for Farm Camp?
