Explorer Day Camp at the Queens County Farm Museum allows young people the opportunity to explore the natural outdoor setting and take part in daily lessons about farm-centered activities provided by expert staff. Campers enjoy exciting and specialized activities such as Nature Walks, Farming, and Scavenger Hunts as well as traditional summer camp programming like Arts & Crafts, Sports, Theme Days and Games.

“Welcome to Farm Camp! We are excited to offer this new program in partnership with Commonpoint Queens,” noted Jennifer Walden Weprin, Executive Director of the Queens County Farm Museum. “This partnership developed to serve the needs of our community as we look to engage youth this summer.  Queens Farm’s 47-acre urban oasis connects campers to nature while integrating the farm’s acclaimed STEM programming. Farm Camp will include Design Your Own Farm, Salad Days, Compost Explorers and 18th Century Cooking among other moo-velous activities.”

The Queens County Farm Museum’s history dates back to 1697; it occupies New York City’s largest remaining tract of undisturbed farmland. The farm encompasses a 47-acre parcel that is the longest continuously farmed site in New York State. The site includes historic farm buildings, a greenhouse complex, livestock, farm vehicles and implements, planting fields, an orchard and herb garden. Commonpoint Queens has close to 70 years of experience providing programs and services to meet the needs of the community, and is operating several summer camp programs this summer that meet all CDC and New York City Department of Health guidelines for COVID-19 summer camp protocol.
