Full Day Farm Camp

May 28-31

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

This week, young farmers will explore how they can reuse, recycle, and upcycle materials on the farm.  For example, they will feed the pigs and learn about the pigs' role in breaking down kitchen waste and enriching the soil!    Young farmers will also learn about their own impact on the natural world and ways they can minimize their ecological footprint!

June 3-7

Seeds, Soil, Science!

During this week of camp, young farmers will explore the beauty of soil!  They will get up close and personal to soil helpers, such as soil amendments, insects, and worms.  They will also learn about the importance of nutritional balance for quality soil, and soil's impact on vegetable production.  Young farmers will also discover the science behind how seeds grow!

June 10-14

Farm Kid Textiles

For this third week of camp, young farmers will learn all about the way we use textiles here on the farm and in their everyday lives.   They will discover how to use different kinds of looms and weaving techniques using a variety of materials.   Young farmers will also learn how to make rope, thatched roofs for animal habitats (and possibly a tree fort), and learn how to sew!

Our "young farmers" ages four through nine will explore the farm by playing and learning during free choice time and during structured, teacher-led activities.

Some of the activities this group will enjoy include:​

  • Using loose parts to build an irrigation system for the water play table

  • Making a bird house to bring home

  • Using natural materials to make art

  • Playing in the seasonal creek

  • Participating in a daily storytime, with farm-related literacy activities

**Note that 9 year olds can choose to be in the younger or older group! **

Children ages nine through twelve will participate in activities throughout the day designed for their age group, including: 

  • Learning teamwork skills on the low ropes course in the forest

  • Discovering how the farm runs as a business, including setting up and running a "Farmer's Market" 

  • Working on daily interest-led projects, such as building  a rain catchment system, setting up bird houses, learning the science behind pest management, and more!
