School Year Programs


We offer activities year-round to children and youth.  We offer and encourage children and their families to engage with nature and the outdoors!  There are many exciting opportunities to come out and play on Camp Ketcha’s beautiful 107 acres during the school year!

Farm & Forest Preschool

Rooted in Montessori traditions we offer a truly unique nature based outdoor program for preschoolers. Ketcha is tucked between the seashore and the salt marshes on 107 acres of forest, fields, farm, and pond. September through May our students are active in the outdoors learning through exploration and observations, hiking the woods, gardening, visiting and helping to tend our bunnies, goats, horses, ducks and chickens. We have lessons on bugs and birds, farming and forests, seasonal cycles, animals of Maine and the world – and lots and lots of outdoor play time. We celebrate muddy hands, active minds and happy hearts!
