About the Appleton Farm Camp Program:
Appleton Farm Camp is a children’s day camp located at Appleton Farms in Ipswich, MA. The 1,000 acre farm is the oldest continuously operating farm in the country. The working dairy, cheese making facility, barnyard animals, beautiful trails, engaging education programs, and deep history make this a special place to visit and work. At camp, we have an interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to learning, in the fields and forests, the Learning Garden, the barnyard, and the kitchen. Our unique camp will connect children to the land, and the natural systems that support us all, while spending time outdoors, exploring, making friends, and having fun.
