Summer camp at Sunset Hill Farm County Park (Camp FUNset) features eight different weeks of themed experiences. For kids entering grades K-9, camp runs Monday-Friday from 9am to 3pm. Additional hours are available (see below).

Each week of camp includes STEM activities, archery, games, art activities, ropes course challenges, time with our farm animals and community garden, leadership development, and nature activities. We also have a field trip each week, too!

Campers entering 3rd grade and up are invited to spend an overnight at the park to continue the camp experience. Overnights are an additional fee and include two meals and two snacks.
