Introducing our 2023 program, Wonder!
Give your young innovator an inspiring, action-packed summer adventure! All-new, hands-on challenges will spark their curiosity and build their confidence as they jump into limitless STEM fun with opportunities to imagine, plan, experiment and create. Read more about what your camper will do each day at camp:
Campers explore physics, design engineering and art as they build their own mini skate park, create DIY riders, personalize their mini skateboards and try out challenging features like ramps, bowls, jumps and rails.
To create an epic celebration, campers become event planners who engineer light-up party hats, use the science of color to create a bubble art banner and invent a Party Assistant to help bring their plans to life.
Campers transform their own robot into a one-of-a-kind animatronic stuffie, and then use inspiration from nature and the power of intellectual property to protect their creation from an idea-stealing Copy Cat.
Ideas pop up as campers launch their own pop-up business, make smart financial decisions, and use entrepreneurship skills and creative strategies to attract customers with the ultimate pop-up event.

We offer an exciting variety of activities throughout the day. Our co-ed groups are coordinated by age, so activities can be tailored to meet the needs of all campers. The camp has three divisions: Forest, Ocean, and Jungle. Within the divisions, small groups of campers follow a pre-established, well-rounded daily schedule which offers the opportunity to try a variety of activities during the camp session. There’s also a chance each day for campers to select, with guidance from their counselor, a group choice activity period.

You may recognize this year’s Bay Farm Summer themes, but the content and programming is going to blow your socks off this year!
That’s because this year, we’re inviting subject-matter experts to every single week to provide dedicated, engaging programs and activities to our campers.
While our themed weeks are oriented around specific themes and activities, they aren’t specialty camps. Instead, days are built around a core schedule with daily routines with large blocks of schedule dedicated to guest experts who will engage campers in a wide range of theme-specific activities.
Themes outlined below are for our Children’s House and Elementary campers. For information about Toddler House themes, check out the Toddler House homepage.
