Farm Camp at the Montclair History Center

The Montclair Community Farms, Montclair History Center, and Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H partner each year to host a fun, nature and history filled camp for youth to learn about our past, and where our food comes from. For details on camp weeks, age, and cost download our brochure.  Financial assistance is available for families in need, contact our staff at to apply.

We still have openings for full-day camp beginning Monday, July 29 and half-day camp beginning August 12 (newly opened week!)

Farm Camp supports youth development by promoting a positive interest in nature, historical living, and agriculture.  Our mission is to provide the best camp experience for youth, while also providing a beneficial learning experience about food, animals, our earth, and its agricultural past. Our campers have the chance to be in the garden each day and participate in activities related to each age level’s theme.
