Pony Camp at Arrowhead Farm.

Gone are the days when camp was a predictable lineup of crafts, snacks, naps,
swimming lessons and more naps. The Vineyard has as many day camps as
it does dirt roads and shady lanes — camps where kids can garden, dance,
skateboard, improvise comedy routines, and jump joyfully from kayaks.
