Children’s Programs

FarmWonders

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, berry-picking, potato-hunting and medicine-making, just to name a few.

Spring break camp registration for 2023 is now open via UBC Camps! Register 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 partnered with UBC Camps for the registration of UBC Farm FarmWonders Summer Camps.

Visit UBC Camps now to register for Nature Explorers Spring Break Camps and FarmWonders Summer Day Camps – all at the UBC Farm.

Field Trips

Every year from spring to fall, the UBC Farm offers field trip programming for a wide range of young audiences.

Our field trips provide an opportunity for children to see and learn about a working certified organic farm and to discuss important social and ecological aspects of food production in our area. Join us to learn about bees, explore the forest, examine soil or compost, and visit the Children’s Garden for a snack! Request a Field trip here.
  • Our Field Trip times for January-April 2023 are: Tuesdays (12:30pm – 2:00pm or 1:00pm – 2:30pm) or Thursdays (9:30am – 11:00am or 10:00am – 11:30am)
