Upton Farm and Forest camp is the idea of, and operated by, Alan Bettler and Joshua Cline. Together they have 40 years of experience in outdoor and environmental education, running camps, carpentry, design, and supporting creativity. Josh lives with his family in the solar powered house he built on the land. For more information on the history of the land click here.
Our vision for the camp is:
to support creativity in children;
to work on real and practical projects ("No more paper and crayons or felted animals, brought home.");
to use a range of materials and tools;
to explore the natural and cultural history of the land as a theme for the campers creativity and projects.
