Norfolk Agricultural Summer Enrichment Program 2019
Our beautiful 365 acre campus at the Norfolk County Agricultural High School is the fantastic setting for this unique summer camp program for Children ages 7 – 13 years.
New for 2019! If there is enough interest, a Counselor in Training program will run for 14 and 15 year old campers. These teens will work with Aggie Staff in order to gain skills necessary for assisting with specialized Aggie Camp activities.
This is a rare opportunity for your child to benefit from working with a dedicated, knowledgeable staff in a picturesque, rolling farm setting, including the school’s classrooms, fields, forests, three ponds, streams, and barns.
