For over 30 years our year-round environmental education center with a small working farm has been dedicated to connecting people with the land that enriches and sustains us all, and we do this through our school field trips, adult lectures, family programs, children’s classes, and our summer camp.

 

Summer Camp

During five action-packed days children (ages 8-12) may become a beekeeper, a farmer, a naturalist, a vegetable gardener, a chef, an artist, a treasure hunter, or a scientist!Form friendships with our residential campers from Norwalk, Bridgeport, & Danbury, while eating delicious foods from the garden and dairy, swimming in our crystal clear pool, going on a campout, and enjoying loads of fun games and activities! We look forward to seeing you!

A week of camp runs 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday and costs $550 for New Pond Farm Family Members and $625 for non-members

School Programs – Field Trips

New Pond Farm has been operating for more than thirty years and our programs are thriving. We have the joy of working with more than 5,000 children (ages 4 and up) each year from CT and NY. All of our programs are hands-on and active, keeping students involved from the beginning to the end.Our Center is located on 102-acres complete with gently rolling pastures, coniferous and deciduous woodlands, a marsh, a pond, and streams. We have such diverse resources as 19th century barns, a maple syruping shed, several telescopes, an astronomy classroom, and an authentically recreated encampment with a barked wigwam and a thatched longhouse. Our pastures and barns are home for a very engaging bevy of beasts- cows, sheep, a flock of chickens and very proud roosters, and two pigs in the warmer months of summer. Our best resource, however, is our enthusiastic and experienced staff, they pay special attention to details that make our programs unique and very keyed-into children’s learning abilities.

 

Birthday Parties

New Pond Farm is proud to offer educational birthday parties. The programs topics offered vary by season. All of our programs are hands-on and active, keeping your child and his or her guests involved throughout the program. Parties are available for children turning 4 and up and the program will be adapted to suit the age group of your guests.Birthday parties are offered after-school during the week, and on weekends, September through June.
Parties are not available in July and August due to our residential summer camp.

All programs are 60 minutes in length, followed by 30 minutes for your party.
Parties are available to Family Members of the farm and the cost is $125 for up to eight children (including the birthday child) and $12 for each additional child, with a 20 child maximum unless otherwise noted. Some programs will have additional material or staffing fees. Every birthday child will go home with their own New Pond Farm Education Center t-shirt.
