Dorset Event

Wilderness Camp, for rising 4, 5, and 6 graders

Jul 13 2020 - Jul 17 2020 • Time: 9am - 3pm. 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.

Using the Yurt as our base camp, we’ll take a deep dive and explore the biology and conservation of Vermont wildlife through hands-on exploration and activities.  Hikes to explore the surrounding landscape, construction of wildlife habitats, and basic backcountry safety will round out our wilderness explorations.

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.
