Amidst all this snow, it is with dreamy excitement that we look forward to summer and all of its offerings. So much will be the same, and yet so much will be new and different!


Campers ages 8-16 will find themselves in the natural wonder that surrounds Hawthorne Valley. An emphasis on understanding where our food comes from, how we care for our food, in plant and animal form, and how we fit into our larger communities, all play a major role in our camps. Cooking, swimming, crafting and playing round out our time together on the farm! We truly hope you’ll join us for another magical summer at Hawthorne Valley!

On Saturday, March 21st, we will hold our Overnight Camp Open House from 11am to 3pm for prospective and pre-registered House and Field campers! We will be offering tours of the farm, samplings of our dining hall menus and answering any and all questions about our Overnight Camps! Please contact Helen for more information and to sign up!


Aster hopes to see you all next summer!
