Outdoor Summer Program 2013
Thank you for inquiring about the Allandale Farm Outdoor Summer Program! This Program gives children ages four through ten a comprehensive exposure to outdoor fun and learning on Boston's last and only working farm. We focus our education efforts on gardening, composting, bird and plant identification, walking, farm animals and outdoor games in the natural environment of our farm.
The curriculum will be taught or guided by trained outdoor education teachers and assistants using the full range of natural amenities found at Allandale Farm. Children receive individual, developmentally appropriate attention in age-level groups with a 1:5 teacher:child ratio. Your child should have something to take home or tell you every day.
The program runs weekly. However, we recommend that children sign up for 2 weeks or more; the longer time frame allows your child to become thoroughly acclimated and comfortable in our unique outdoor environment. Children may sign up for a total of 3 weeks.
The 2013 Application Packet (PDF) contains the application, parent/guardian agreement, release, program registration and payment forms.
