Our camp programs are all about Farming, Food, and Fun.
Arcadia Farm is a place of wonder and discovery. Campers are surrounded by a bounty of vegetables and beautiful spaces. The Groundhog Garden, Arcadia’s educational youth space, is a plot in the middle of the four-acre Arcadia Farm. It is designed specifically to engage the elementary-aged audience – to inspire them, to excite them, and to invoke questions and discoveries!
During a day at Farm Camp, our activities could range from compost explorations and making fresh salsa, to time with Visiting Educators who share their knowledge for farm topics from bees to goats!
Our Visiting Educators are partners of Arcadia who come from across Virginia and DC. They are dedicated and delighted to conduct sessions with our Farm Campers. The activities each week vary according to theme week but all sessions include food and farming activities like harvesting, weeding, making recipes, and more.
