HealthBarn USA’s Summer Camp ROCKS!
Welcome to HealthBarn USA at Abma’s Farm in Wyckoff, NJ the only camp where you can eat, plant, cook and play! We offer summer camp, ages 5-8 and 9-12 and summer seedlings, ages 3-5 at the farm. This hands-on fun and educational experience serves as an important building block for your child’s healthy future in the midst of our fast-food culture!
Our campers build their skills in cooking, organic gardening, nutrition and life skills as they achieve bronze, silver, gold (mastered it) and platinum (mastered it & can teach others!) status throughout their experience! Learning has never been so much fun!
Summer Camp, ages 5-8 & 9-12: Voted Best of Bergen and Editor’s Pick by (201) Magazine and featured in The American Camp Association’s recent article, “The Farm-to-Campfire Experience,”click here to read it!
“I don’t know what you did, but my daughter is the worst eater! She only eats chicken nuggets and boxed mac ‘n cheese. After she went to your camp, she’s making homemade raviolis at home! She’s been to many camps, but HealthBarn made a big difference.”
This one-of-kind farm-to-fork experience from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. offers a new wholesome experience each week for your camper(s) to learn firsthand where their food comes from and why eating fresh is best for their bodies and the environment, too. In addition to our nationally recognized food and nutrition curriculum, we offer “themed” weeks that culminate with a Friday finale that parents and siblings are welcome to attend. The weeks are as follows:
Be Green: week of June 23 through June 27
Be a Chef: week of June 30 through July 4 (pro-rated) *CLOSED
