Published DateTo The Daily Sun,
Prescott Farm has so much to be thankful for this summer camp season! We are at our highest registration rate ever. This is mainly due to all the help we have received with our Camp Scholarship Fund (CSF). We can't thank enough the local businesses and people that have supported our CSF this summer, as it has offered so many more children the opportunity to attend our camps that otherwise wouldn't have been able to.
We believe every child deserves the chance to experience environmental education and our CSF, supported by many generous community organizations, is designed to help families who would not otherwise be able to attend our camp. Full and partial scholarships are available, but funds are limited on a first come, first serve basis. The demand this year exceeded far beyond what we had available, but with help from Meredith Village Savings Bank, WLNH Children's Auction, PSNH, Belknap County Master Gardeners, Bank of New Hampshire, Pike Industries, Mill Falls at the Lake and many other generous individuals, we were able to provide over 50 children with scholarship assistance! Again, we want to thank those businesses and individuals, because this couldn't have been possible without their support! The Lakes Region community is strong, both businesses and individuals truly can make a difference when working together.
Our WildQuest day camps are licensed by the State of N.H. and led by experienced environmental educators. Our 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. We believe that a camp experience with us will enhance your child's ecological awareness and provide fun learning opportunities in a community-minded and non-competitive atmosphere. 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. Extended care can provide supervised playtime before and after regular camp hours.
If you would like to support our CSF or have a child that may like to attend our summer camp, but are in need of scholarship assistance please contact us at 603-366-5695.
