'Early bird' registration available for Prescott Farm summer camp

LACONIA — The deadline for early bird registration rates for the Prescott Farm WildQuest Summer Camp is Wednesday, April 30.

WildQuest Summer Camp is offered nine weeks out of the summer, starting June 23 and is for children ages 4-15. Camp always includes nature activities, animal and plant identification, arts and crafts, quests, games, and hands-on learning. Most of the day is spent outdoors.

The camp's goal is to foster an appreciation and understanding of the natural and cultural history of Prescott Farm, and by extension, children's own special places as well. The camp strives to enhance children's ecological awareness and provide fun learning opportunities in a community-minded and non-competitive atmosphere.

There are several options in terms of age groups so that each child receives an age-appropriate experience.

This summer WildQuest will offer Pre-K Pioneers (Ages 4-5), Explorers (Ages 5-7), Questers (Ages 6-12) and Teen Trekkers (Ages 12-15). Depending on the group some attend camp half day, partial day or full day. Each camp week is also a different theme. Some of this year's camp themes include Garden to Table, Life on the Farm, Let's Go Camping, Survivor, and Nature's Builders.

Prescott Farm is a non-profit organization that offers environmental education for all ages throughout the year including WildQuest camps, public programs, field trips, and long-term partnerships with local elementary schools.
