Summer camp, riding program in Rockville celebrates Farm Tour -- Gazette.Net


Camp Olympia in Rockville opened Saturday as part of the 2014 Montgomery County Farm Tour and Harvest Sale.

The 14-acre facility on Muncaster Mill Road has operated for 56 years, offering a year-round riding program, summer sports camp, kindergarten and nursery school.

Director Andrea Lingwood said the camp decided to join the annual farm tour about 10 years ago even though it is not a farm.

“People like to come out and walk around,” she said. “We have goats, chickens and a rooster, a bunny and horses and a donkey. It’s like a day in the country.”

Visitors also were invited to watch demonstrations of several camp activities, including gymnastics, horseback riding and swimming, Lingwood said.
