Our number one priority has always been and continues to be is the safety of our campers, their families, our staff and our family. This being said, it is with a heavy heart we have decided to close Farm Camp for the 2020 summer season. We know this will be hard for many of my families but we feel it is the right decision.

We did considered offering 3 sessions in August but after reassessing the current COVID-19 situation in the State of Maine and reevaluating the feasibility of camp,  we have decided we could not operate camp  in a way that ensures the safety and well-being of our campers , staff and families. The required guidelines would not be manageable and would greatly impede upon the overall quality of our Farm Camp. If we could have offered camp safely, we would have.

We look forward to Farm Camp returning next year and for years to come. In the meantime, we are planning ways we can creatively connect with our families and community over the summer. Please email us with any questions. 

Thank you to all Maine Camps – your input and collaboration helped shape our decision. Be safe everyone and we look forward to seeing you soon!
