If you have questions or concerns about the process, please get in touch with us directly. Actually, that goes for pretty much anything: we’re here to help! Our contact information is on the right.
Registration now open.
Sibling and multi-week discounts
When you enroll two or more siblings at Farm Camp, you will receive a $10 family discount on each child. When you enroll your child in more than one session of Farm Camp, you will receive a multi-session discount of $10, which will apply to each additional session.
Things come up. Life happens. Under most circumstances, we’re happy to refund your total, less the deposit. However, we are not able to refund cancellations made within two weeks of the start of the session. Once a session has begun, we do not offer rebates for partial or incomplete attendance.
The Trustees is committed to providing environmental experiences for youth regardless of family income. To obtain a scholarship application, please click here or contact the camp office. Scholarship funds for Appleton Farm Camp 2017 have already been allocated.
The Trustees is a member-supported, nonprofit organization. Our Family Members receive a discount on camp programs. If you are not already a member, you can choose to become one when you register for camp. As a new member, you’ll automatically receive the member discount.
We pride ourselves on turning strangers into friends, but sometimes you still need a buddy. Please indicate on your registration form if you’d like to place your child with another camper. We’ll honor one request per camper when possible, based on age and maturity level.
What to Bring
The Farm Camp experience offers unique opportunities for learning and adventure in the great outdoors. We want your child to be prepared – but not over-burdened! Most importantly, children need to wear closed toed shoes to the farm. Sneakers are perfect. Please remember to send your camper with an easy-to-carry backpack, a water bottle (we have refilling stations), sunscreen, bug repellent, a snack, and a lunch if you are a Sprout, Farmhand or Forager (we do not have refrigeration or heating capabilities). There are bins for storing extra clothing, foul-weather gear, or anything else you’d like your child to bring. Please check the Parent Handbook for suggestions and restrictions.
Before and After Care
We are happy to accommodate busy parents with a before and after care option. Our staff is available to accept your child as early as 8AM and they may stay until 4PM. You must register in advance for this service; cost is $45 per week, per session.
License and Accreditation
Farm Camp complies with all regulations required by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and is licensed by the Ipswich Board of Health. Parents have the right to request and review the following policies: background check, health care, discipline policies and grievance procedures.
