School Events Calendar

July 27, 2017
  • Farm Camp
    12:00 am - 11:59 pm

    The Hartsbrook School’s Farm Camp offers children the chance to connect with nature through the life of a working farm. Through meaningful work, Young Stewards (ages 6-12) learn about the farm animals and their care. They enjoy the land-based crafts of farm and garden, such as butter/cheese making, wool dyeing, felting, and paper making. The Spouts (ages 4-6) have their own teacher and activities, like grinding grain, making flower chains, and visiting the animals. CIT’s (ages 13-15) assist with campers and activities. All campers enjoy songs, stories and water games. Learning to work on a farm teaches children valuable lessons- like perseverance and self-reliance- that help them in the modern world.

    All Farm Camp session meet 8:45 am to 3 pm, Monday through Friday (except for the week of July 4th which will meet M, W, Th, F).

    New in 2017! This summer we are offering a flexible pick-up until 3:30 pm. You must register by phone for this option.

    Spring session:
    April 17-21 ( $390, $350 per sibling )
    Young Stewards only

    Summer sessions:
    June 19-23, June 26-30, July 3,5,6,7, July 10-14, July 17-21, July 24-28

  • Summer Camping at Indian Hollow
    12:00 am - 11:59 pm
    Indian Hollow Road, Indian Hollow Rd, Chesterfield, MA 01012, USA

    Each year Hartsbrook families chip in to rent the entire Indian Hollow campground in Chesterfield, MA. Some families come just for the day, others stay four nights. Children of all grades bike through the woods, build chutes and play in the river, play capture the flag, and have a grand time. Hike, lounge in a chair, or join the music making while you roast s'mores. On our last night, following a communal bonfire and sing along, the high school students sleep out under the stars in the field.

    For information, directions (Google will put you an hour away), or to find out why this is my favorite event of the summer, contact Tim McNerney at 413-341-1379
