Family Camping

Enjoy Nature in the City!

Camp out at the farm!

Camping out at Common Ground is a great way to connect with nature without leaving the city.

Bring a picnic dinner, roast marshmallows over the campfire, and take an optional guided night hike through West Rock. On Saturday morning you and your family help feed the farm animals and enjoy a farm fresh breakfast. Camping experience not necessary, and all ages are welcome!

Use our wooden lean-tos, borrow one of our tents, or bring your own. $10 per person (ages 3 and under are free). Pre-Registration required; please call 203-389-4333 x1221 or email
