Only 2.3 miles from the Craft School, and a six minute drive (4 miles) from Central Square in downtown Keene and all its charming shops, Frog Belly Farm camping option includes a family-style farm dinner, evening bonfire, and a wholesome breakfast before classes. The site includes access to indoor toilet/shower facilities and each camper will have a soft spot on the lawn to pitch a tent. The evening will include a bonfire with circle experience designed to create a space to share experiences of the day and connect a bit before the next class.

In the event the weather is miserable, campers will be welcome inside to the Frog Belly ‘s cozy den, light a fire, put on a record and sip tea ’til bedtime.
