Farm and Nature Experiences

  • New in 2024! Summer Science Camp: ‘Tween Farm & Town with the Terre Haute Children’s Museum. We can’t rein in our excitement for this week’s equestrian experience! Campers will meet at St. Mary of-the-Woods to see all that the Sisters of Providence have to offer on their campus- horses, alpacas, chickens and bees. We will have the chance to view how the campus grows their own vegetables, flowers and herbs and learn how we can all live more sustainably and give back to our beautiful planet.

  • New to our list in 2024! Camp Roar with Exotic Feline Rescue Center. Camp Roar is a one-of-a-kind camp where children can learn all about the residents of the rescue center in a close, safe setting, while also taking part in games and simulated rescues. Camp Roar is a single day camp for kids 8-12 years old that runs from 10am-4pm. Campers need to arrive by 9:45am. Parents are invited to stay and go on the 10am tour with their campers.
