Camp Eureka: A magical window into farmlife

Camp Eureka: Three one-week day-camp sessions at Cornwall, CT farms, studios, and woodlots…

At Camp Eureka, you may milk a cow, whittle a spoon, grind grain into flour, walk through a corn field, gather eggs, meet a sheep, spin wool, plant popcorn, harvest veggies, watch a beehive, build a bird house, extract honey, hand-dip candles, pick peaches, make fresh jam, churn cream into butter, fell a tree, use a two-person saw…

A session at Camp Eureka provides:
-five mornings of farm visits welcoming children of all ages and their families

-flexible, child-led learning in an intimate, relaxed environment
-a time to unplug and unwind from our faster paced modern lives
-creative, affirming, eclectic, welcoming staff
– hands-on projects making useful wares
-practical skills and knowledge
-exposure to farm-style life and a non-corporate approach to living

-a full picture connecting what we consume with where it comes from
-families fresh new perspective on one another
-parents a chance to learn from each other
-an opportunity to experience and sample a variety of life-styles
-a place where “You meet cool people!”
