Campers will enjoy farm activities from 9-1 at Compass School Farm. They will then be transported to the YMCA for the afternoon portion. Camp Broad Rock is a premier Rhode Island day camp located on 20 beautiful acres featuring open fields and hiking trails adjacent to the South County YMCA. Campers have access to:

  • Low ropes for team-building activities
  • An archery range
  • Indoor & outdoor basketball courts
  • Five-lane indoor aquatics center
  • 20 acres of fields and woods for exploration and activities

Hands on activities with soil, plants, animals and farm-to-table harvest are features of this summer camp program. Kids use magnification to spy on miniature soil life, make and apply compost tea to feed our garden, and get up-close and personal with pollinator studies! Making lavender shortbread cookies and exploring our vernal pond are favorite activities of this summer camp which emphasizes outdoor learning through play and exploration.
