We’re helping children learn how to deal with, and overcome adversity, confliction emotions, and anxiety, while nurturing resiliency and maturity.

Island Hill Farm's Agriculture Experience Camp 2023
If your child loves animals, is curious about nature, and craves a healthy, hands-on experience they will never forget, sign up now - Let’s grow some future farmers!
For 2023, our IHF Agriculture Experience camps are back by popular demand.
Based on our 9 years of offering camps we have decided this year to offer 3 day camp weeks, grouped by ages.
Camp spaces are limited to 10 children per week based on age groups, unless otherwise approved by Farmer Flory.
Independence is a huge importance; children must want to be here and immerse themselves in the full activities of the camp.
Campers will spend the day learning where their food comes from, how to care for rabbits and chickens, and participating in basic barn chores like feeding and cleaning the animals! They will see eggs hatch, greet new baby bunnies, and get know our many goats at the largest goat farm on Prince Edward Island; each goat has a name!
Because of the small groups, the kids will have individual attention from our staff and camp leaders and will get to meet guest experts on things like animal husbandry, sustainable farm practices.
We provide a safe and inclusive environment that is also the #cutestplaceonearth.
Camp days will be Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday of your selected week.
Camp hours are ready to roll at 9:00AM to 3:00PM
Camp Week 1 – July 4/5/6 (Ages 6 to 9)
Camp Week 2 – July 11/12/13 (Ages 9 to 11)

Dress appropriately for all weather
Wear closed toe shoes (no sandals!)
Bring a change of clothes (Please label items with child’s name)
Reusable water bottle
Lunch and snacks
$400 +HST per week – NON REFUNDABLE
Children must want to be at the farm and immerse themselves in the full activities of the camp which will include care and cleaning of the animals and their living spaces. If your child is only interested in the handling of the animals and not the hands on experience, please purchase a family pass for IHF as this takes away from the experience for the other campers.
