The Farm Arts Camp is a summer camp located on an exquisitely beautiful mountaintop campus in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The Farm focuses on a love of the arts and the outdoors, with a strong emphasis on the visual arts (painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, & ceramics) and traditional camp activities such as horseback riding, boating, outdoor cooking and camping, hiking, and nature study. We offer a wide range of non-competitive activities in a fun, friendly traditional camp setting.

Campers at The Farm also have access to programs at The Farm's sister camp, Camp Ballibay, including a full music program (instrumental, vocal, and rock/folk/pop music instruction), a theater program (one-act plays), a camp radio station, swimming instruction, daily sports activities, and movement programs. Camp meals emphasize health, seasonality, whole local ingredients and sustainability. An on-site garden provides some produce and opportunities for camper participation.

Sessions range from 2 to 8 weeks in length for boys and girls ages 8-16.
