Children’s Classes & Programs at The Maker Farm

When you give children the space and opportunity to explore, investigate, dream and play, that’s when imagination and creativity come to life. Children’s Classes at the Maker Farm are led by an experienced teaching staff who engage kids in art activities, recycled crafts, sewing, theater, horseback riding, cooking, farming, and much more.


2022 Summer Camp

The Maker Farm hosts a Massachusetts-certified summer camp. Create, grow and celebrate this summer at The Maker Farm’s summer camps at TWO locations in Westford (The Maker Farm at Meadowbrook) and Pepperell (The Maker Farm at Bancroft). There’s something for every child – from pony camps to theater in the garden and from arts & crafts classes for Juniors and Advanced makers. Each day, camps kick off with an All-Camp Jamboree including fun games and activities. We’re excited to offer so much more to nourish your child’s imagination and spirit!

Drop-In Activities & Classes (Ages 2-6)

At the Maker Farm, we believe creativity has no age boundaries. Our baby, toddler & preschool activities and classes are designed to engage our youngest makers (ages 0-6 years) and the important people in their world – moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends.

Children’s Weekly Classes

Creativity and imagination abound in our weekly classes. From masterpiece art to sewing, our unique classes are designed to tap into children’s natural curiosity and unbridled imaginations. There is no “right way” nor “wrong way” at the Maker Farm just a wonderful journey down the path of the child’s imagination guided by our experienced teaching staff.

Theater Troupe

Each season, children in our Theater Troupe bring plays, storytelling, music and history to life on stage. Guided by Emily Piper, children experience the excitement of pulling together a complete theater production culminating in a live performance for family and friends. From Swingin’ and Jivin’ Princesses to A Christmas in Concord, our plays are custom-tailored for all levels and abilities so each child plays a role.

Theater Classes on Hold Until Further Notice

Workshops & School Year Vacation Camps

When school is out, send your children over to the Maker Farm for workshops filled with creativity, exploration, friendships, and fun. We offer workshops and camps for most Westford “out of school” days – holidays, early release days, February & April vacation weeks, and more!

Horseback Riding

More than riding instruction, our horse classes and camps guide children in horsemanship, round pen work, safe handling practices, caring for horses and their living environments, and riding with instructor, Lori Caouette, at The Maker Farm at Bancroft in Pepperell, MA. We cater to a wide-range of riding abilities.


Hooray! We have moved our operations to our “new” old farm in Pepperell, MA. And, we have a large indoor arena with a heated viewing area for parents. We also have two outdoor arenas. We now are booking lessons for 2020-2021. Lessons are $60 per hour for private or very small group instruction with licensed instructors and experienced handlers. We also have options for siblings. If you have a small child interested in riding, we have a “Pony Pal” option for children to share a riding lesson with a friend in which they share a horse for tacking up time and then take turns riding (and parents can split the riding fee).
