Children’s Programs


What are the kids up to at the UBC Farm? They are most likely gardening their plots in the children’s garden, learning how to make a pumpkin loaf with their mentors, or identifying bugs along the agroforestry trail. There is a bounty of activities that we find our farm kids engaging in: field games, seeding in the greenhouse, fort-building, composting, apple-picking, chicken-feeding, berry-picking, potato-hunting and medicine-making, just to name a few.

Due to COVID-19, we’ve altered and reduced our children’s progamming for 2021. The good news is that FarmWonders day camps are going ahead with a new partnership with UBC Camps! See more below. For full information on the UBC Farm’s Camp Safety plan, click here.

Nature Explorers Day Camps

Explore, run, create and learn in our beautiful Children’s Learning Garden, observe beehives and in-season crops on field trips around the farm.

The theme of each of our one-week camps will be learned through a variety of exciting recreational activities, crafts and hands-on experiences. Camps include forest adventures, planting, eco-crafts, popsicle making, and (of course) a chance to harvest, cook and eat fresh garden produce!

We are excited to announce a new partnerships with UBC Camps!
