Ketcha Barn

Camp Ketcha Barn offers a variety of year-round programming to children and adults in the Greater Portland area. We are a community centered farm, focusing on child development, general nature education and learning how a farm works. We firmly believe that contact with animals and gardens can help promote emotional and physical strength by developing responsibility, independence, and self-esteem as well as creating friendships with fellow participants.

At theCamp Ketcha Barn we employ knowledgeable and dedicated staff with years of experience working with people and animals. Our staff passionate about our children’s development and seek to introduce them to the wonders of a farm specially designed for children. We also understand the power of experiential education, or “learning through doing”, and we center our offerings around this premise.

We have a wide variety of programs open to youth of all ages. Our programs are geared developmentally to different age groups.
