Welcome to Camel's Hump Farm

Camel's Hump Farm is a 47-acre nature education center and community garden located on the former estate of Archbald Johnston, the first mayor of Bethlehem. This hidden treasure along the Monocacy Creek has trails through farmland, forests, meadows, and wetlands.
We offer programming in nature education, practical skills, health, wellness, history, and the arts for the benefit of our community.
The Friends of Johnston invite you to discover the farm!
