Summer Camps

Summer in Massachusetts means CAMP!

With world-class properties like the Crane Estate, Appleton Farms, World’s End, Weir River Farm, Powisset Farm, and The Farm Institute – and now deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, we take pride in offering unparalleled camp experiences. COVID19 has altered how our acclaimed camps will be running, but with extensive safety measures in place, we're sure your kiddos will have fun and learn this summer.

Please note that The Hive at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln has gone VIRTUAL this summer, so no matter where you live, your little learners can participate in the creative projects they have planned.

Whether your kids like farms or fields, woods or waves, art-making or yummies-baking, we’ve got an amazing summer experience lined up for them.

Immersive full day adventures run July through August offering full options for ages 5 through 15-year-olds.

We have crafted new adventures and experiences for our campers that cultivate a sense of wonder, spark innovative ideas, and develop an appreciation for our natural world. And while summer camp is ultimately about having fun, our dedication to fully experiential, place-based STEM/STEAM learning is there too, engaging campers of all interests and learning styles!

What parents are saying

"We could not have been happier with our children's experience at FFC! The counselors were wonderful, and the activities were fantastic - the girls loved helping care for the farm animals and tried foods in the cooking classes they normally won't touch at home! They woke up each morning asking when it was time to leave for Powisset, they really enjoyed their week there. We will definitely be back next summer and thank you for such a special camp experience."
– 2019 Camper Parent

“Wonderful… everything I could ask for in a summer camp. I love that the program leverages the beautiful surroundings with so much imagination and a great variety of activities!”

– Nicole Loring, Camper's Mother

“My son has tried several day camps in the past, and he has tolerated them. SummerQuest was different. It was engaging – physically, intellectually, socially – and it was FUN! My son looked forward to coming each day and hated to see it end.”
– Elizabeth Frederick, Camper's Mother

“My husband and I love that you promote so much hands-on, jump in-with-both-feet learning. We are confident that you, like us, want these Questers to get as many salty, sandy, muddy, grassy imprints on their young psyches as possible. What better place than the Crane Estate to bring out their adventurous spirits and lay down some lasting impression of what it means to be happy?”
– Heidi Goodwin, Camper's Mother
