Yaleville Farm is very happy to be offering day camp opportunities for children again this summer. Day camps will all have an outdoor education focus and a majority of activities will be in the woods at Yaleville Farm.

See a sample of the daily schedule below.

 

There will be five separate weeks of day camp. There will be camps of 3 days and 5 days in length. Day camp will run from 9:00 am -3:00 pm. Before and after care is available for an additional fee.

Ages for the day camps will be 7-10 OR  10-14 yrs old.

Older individuals can contact Maryanne for counselor in training opportunities.

 

Weeks for camp are listed below. Summer camp size is limited to 10 campers per week.

The Director of the camps will be Maryanne Whyte. Maryanne has been working with children as a teacher, school administrator, camp director, coach, and camp counselor since 1983. She is excited to offer outdoor education focused learning to the children of Chenango County.

Maryanne is recently retired from teaching and is the resident beekeeper at Yaleville Farm. She grew up on the farm and enjoys hiking, camping, growing flowers, and spending time working with her bees.
