Dorset Event

Forest Camp, for rising 1, 2, and 3 graders, will run in two sessions

Jul 20 2020 - Jul 24 2020 • Time: 9:00am - 3:00 pm Education & History and Recreation & Fitness

After careful consideration and planning, Merck Forest and Farmland Center will offer three summer camp experiences for area kids in 2020. These camps will all reinforce MFFC’s mission to inspire curiosity, love and responsibility for natural and working lands.

Campers will be based out of our Yurt, tucked in the woods close to the Visitor Center, as we explore the various ecosystems in and around the forest.  Meeting our farm animals up close, exploring our pond, hikes, learning about wood craft, and staying safe in the woods are all part of the fun, as are games and crafts. 

All camps are limited to 6 campers. The fee for these week-long experiences is $250, and pre-registration is required. Campers provide their own food, snacks and drinks. In addition, campers will have additional items to bring to camp, which will be outlined in the registration packet.  MFFC will follow all State of Vermont and American Camp Association Guidelines for summer camps.
