Farm Camp


Bring back the tradition of sending the kids to the farm this summer. Farm camp is full of hands-on, agricultural adventures. Campers rotate through three stations each day: Animal Husbandry, Food and Garden, and Natural Arts. We believe it is important for all children to know where their food comes from, how to produce and preserve it, and how to reconnect with their natural world. 

Ages: Entering Kindergarten - Entering 7th grade (Campers will be split into three groups by age)

Hours: 8:45am-3pm

Swimming: Campers swim from 2-3pm with a chaperone. Parents partner with other parents, but no more than three campers per adult. * If you cannot arrange for a chaperone for this hour, please do not sign up. We no longer feel comfortable asking a child to sit out.

Programming:

Campers will be split into three groups by age and rotate through three stations throughout the day. Station one is Spanish: Where Does My Food Come From. Station two is ScienceInto the Woods. Station 3 is Natural Fun: Challenges and Games. Our counselors design full, fun activities based on teamwork and meeting challenges.

We believe kids need to get outside and learn to be confident in nature. We also believe each child contributes to the well-being of the camp family. We make it a priority for each child to find friendship, courage, and the love of adventure!
