Designed for the camper who loves animals and the outdoors, 2nd Nature Farm Camp is a day camp for boys and girls, ages 6-14. Campers will participate in the daily routine of a real working farm. Embark on a journey of fun and education, as we learn about sustainability, healthy food, humane treatment of animals, and so much more!
- Barn chores (e.g. feeding animals and cleaning stalls)
- Caring for animals (sheep, goats, chicken, ducks, and more)
- Farm-to-table gardening
- Gathering and washing eggs
- Picking cultured and wild berries
- Wool crafting
- Forest, field, and pond hikes and exploration
- Water play
2nd Nature Academy is located on The Nature of Things campus, the site of a former 18th century dairy farm. Consisting of 39 acres of pristine land in south Nashua, NH and Dunstable, MA, the grounds also abut roughly 700 acres of conserved and protected land in both municipalities. With fields, forests, ponds, wetlands, and a working farm, our grounds are the perfect place to learn, explore, and play!
Our sister farm and coordinator of all of our agricultural programs, Claddagh Hill Farm operates out of The Nature of Things campus, as well as an idyllic property in New Ipswich, NH. It is the belief of these local farmers that the average American has lost touch with where and how their food has been produced and wish to disrupt this disturbing trend by instilling this knowledge in a new generation.
