Fernbrook Farms: Chesterfield Township, N.J.

Dirty is the name of the game at this day camp for kids ages 6-14, which focuses on sustainable living practices and hands-on education. Fernbrook Farms campers learn the impact of pollution by checking the creek for water quality and macro-organisms, design rain barrels, create art from recycled materials, make ice cream with milk and fruit from the farm, collect vegetables from the garden and spin wool from the sheep. Fernbrook Farms is also building a rain garden and equipping the site with solar panels.
