ABOUT THE YOUTH PROGRAMS AT SYLVESTER MANOR:
Welcome to the Summer Youth Programs at Sylvester Manor Educational Farm! Summer is a wonderful time to experience all that Sylvester Manor has to offer, and we hope that you will consider enrolling your child in one of our two youth programs. Children participating in the youth programs at the Manor will plant and harvest vegetables, prepare and cook dishes using the produce they have grown, feed and care for the various livestock kept on the Manor property, and learn about the environment and history of Sylvester Manor in addition to engaging in daily art, music, and yoga activities.

The 2017 Summer Youth Programs will run from Monday, July 3 through Friday, August 19. Program hours are from 9am - 12 noon. Drop off and pick up will take place at the Farmstand on Manwaring Road.
