Maybury Farm Summer Camps – Maybury Farm in Northville offers fun summer day camps for kids ages 5-11. Hands-on summer camp experiences on the farm where children make vital connections to the animals and agriculture that provide their food and fiber. Maybury Farm is located in Northville, MI and sits on 85 acres of farm, fields and forest.
Maybury Farm Summer Camps
Farm Campers attend camp on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am-4pm daily. (except week July 20-22, which is Mon-Wed). With over 100 farm animals of various breeds and varieties, a large farm garden filled with delicious vegetables and flowers, trails through forests and fields and plenty of green space to play and learn, Maybury Farm Camp has something for every camper who attends. Campers are given the opportunity and responsibility to help feed and care for the farm animals and farm garden. While doing so, they learn about how these important resources provide the food and fiber they use every day. Hikes along the trail lead to discoveries about the many trees, plants and crops that make up Michigan habitats. Group games and farmyard chores help campers develop teamwork and leadership skills. Campers also collaborate to prepare parent presentations for Thursday’s “Grow Show,” an opportunity to share their newfound knowledge with family. Time is balanced between structured learning, and free time to form friendships, while educational crafts encourage creative and imaginative play.
