Hallockville’s Summer Camp

Connecting children to the land, the community and their creative spirits

Hallockville is looking forward to a safe & fun-filled camp experience. 
Our 28 acre site provides the ideal setting for your child to enjoy the outdoors this summer.

Hallockville Museum Farm offers a unique day camp experience for ages 5-12 unlike anything else on the East End.

Hallockville’s inspirational setting will surround campers with 250 years of agricultural history! Situated in Riverhead, the camp is convenient to the Hamptons/South Fork, the North Fork, Mattituck, Southold, Greenport, Shelter Island and Wading River.

Daily activities at Hallockville’s Farm Camp include circle time with songs and stories; interactions with farm animals including cows, sheep and chickens; farhores; feeding the animals and theme time projects and activities.

CELEBRATE THE EARTH!

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22 “Restore the Earth”

Walk our Virtual Sustainability Tour to learn how everything on the farm was recycled!

Thanks to a grant from the Robert D.L. Gardiner Foundation Hallockville now offers visitors the chance to follow a high-tech, virtual Sustainability Trail. The trail makes use of informational guideposts that dot the grounds. Each sign is fitted with a QR code. When scanned by a tour taker with a camera app on a smartphone, an audio narration will pop up along with photos or videos — in some cases, both. “Members” of the Hallock family, which had the property in its name from at least 1801 until 1979, will be heard talking about how the farm operated, with details about such things as how they recycled gray water, fed garbage to pigs and used their rainwater capture system.

We would not have been able to undertake a project like this without the help of the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation. Hallockville Museum Farm graciously thanks the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation for their continuing support of Hallockville’s mission: To take Long Island back to its family farming roots and explore their relevance today.

Sustainability, recycling, and conservation are terms used in modern day conversation, but did you know that most farms in the 19th-century were models of sustainable living? The Hallock farm was no exception– virtually everything in the home and on the farm was recycled. reused, or repurposed after initial use. Almost nothing was ever wasted or thrown away, and that’s a lesson for today.

The museum’s new “Sustainability Trail” is a trip back to a time when sustainable living was truly a way of life. Along the way, you will meet Halsey Hallock and his family, the last to live in the old Homestead. They will tell you about the many sustainable practices used over 100 years ago– we hope this journey to the past will help you think about your own lifestyle today and in the future.

Celebrate Arbor Day on April 30

Plant a tree in your area or sponsor the care of one of our trees! See the info to the right on how to participate.

Above are Board Members Al and Dayle finishing the planting an Emerald City Tulip Tree tree donated by Half Hollow Nursery. It was planted with the help of Bill Lindsay landscaping, and is sponsored by a family member to be cared for in memory of Estelle Evans. This tree and two others; a Princeton Sentry Elm and an Adams Crabapple tree are the first of new tree installations to include native trees on our campus.

When Estelle Evans passed away on December 21, 2020 one day short of her 103rd birthday, Hallockville lost a founding member, creator of the museum’s woodstove cooking program, and a long-time friend. She was the primary author of “Receipts and Reminiscences of the Hallock Family and Friends,” a heritage cookbook still sold in the museum’s gift shop. Most memorably, she brought the tradition of baking molasses cookies to Hallockville. Born on her grandparents’ farm on Sound Avenue on Dec. 22, 1917, Estelle was a valuable consultant on questions about local history or long-forgotten recipes throughout her long life.

COVID protocols will be followed and visitors to the farm will be required to wear a mask at all times and social distance.
