Weekly Themes and Focus

Each day our campers will experience what life on a farm is like.  They will participate in farm chores, animal husbandry tasks, and gardening/horticultural experiences. No matter the day your child attends, they will always have the chance to ride horses, work and play on the farm, play sports and yard games, and do arts and crafts.  Egg incubation and hatchings will take place regularly.  Bottle feeding lambs will also take place on a daily basis. 

 

We will also have a weekly theme, with a focus where we will deep dive into animals, nature, and simple ecology.  Our "hands on" curriculum will repeat every four weeks, and will be taught in small groups according to age and understanding level.   Each week includes ideas of what can be accomplished, not always what will be completed.

  • Is the summer camp indoors, outdoors, or both?

    • It will be both!  We have a beautiful air-conditioned facility that offers a wonderful classroom and learning area, a small area, and a full bathroom.  We will be taking advantage of the outdoor farm as often as possible but will spend learning time inside each day to get out of the heat.   ​

  • Will lunch be provided?

    • No, lunch will not be provided.  A light snack will be given during the camp, but lunch must be eaten off-site after the camp. ​

  • What will the group size and ages be?

    • Final group size and age breakdowns will depend on the number of kids that sign up each day.  Group sizes will be around 5 children per group per teacher/aide.  Approximate class age breakdowns will be ages 4-7, 8-12.

  • What should my child bring?

    • Water bottle with their name on it.  ​

    • Shoes and clothing that can get dirty. 

    • Sunglasses and a hat if possible.  

    • Make sure your child comes wearing sunscreen!
