We accept children ages 4-12 

Limited spaces for younger Sweet Chickadee children available.

All campers must be potty trained. Exceptions will be made with approval by the director. 

Our Summer Farm camp is designed to enrich every child’s innate desires to be outside connecting to nature, to be social connecting to others and to be an independent, empowered individual connecting to their successes!  We offer children the opportunity to deepen their relationship to nature, friends and their own capabilities through all of our daily activities with caring, enthusiastic guidance from our incredible, authentic, devoted staff. 

We spend the entire day outside every day!  Children will have fun, rich days full of:  

Free Play- play structure, sandbox, wood forts, balance beams, zip line, swings; 

Gardening- planting, digging, composting, harvesting, watering, weeding;

Farm chores- petting and feeding goats, collecting chicken eggs, holding chicks;

Nourishment- baking bread, community games, storytelling, singing, helping others;

Projects- arts & crafts, painting, nature art, building, projects come home on Fridays. 

Typically on Thursdays we have a field trip day to Moreau State Park. Pick up and drop off is at Moreau- we do not transport campers-  we have a designated pick up and drop off location, and there is no extra fee. Depending on enrollment we will keep you posed if this is an option for this summer.

This Summer Farm Camp offers a summer of wonder, fun, purpose and love where children create experiences that can be remembered for a lifetime!

We can’t wait to see you!!!

2019 SUMMER CAMP SCHEDULE

Week #1 –  7/29 – 8/2     *Sweet Dirt*         Ages 4-12

This week we will be gardening and creating mini gardens that the children will take home at the end of the week. There’s is nothing like watching flowers and vegetables grow that you’ve planted yourself! 

Week #2 –  8/5 – 8/9      *Sweet Branch*     Ages 4-12

This week children will be designing and personalizing their own trusty walking stick! Whether hiking mountains, on a nature walk or in the backyard on an adventure – children love using walking sticks!

Week #3 – 8/12 – 8/16     *Sweet Wildlife*     Ages 4-12

This week we will be creating feeders and decorating them with materials we find in nature. Having the opportunity to feed animals is a wonderful way to keep a child’s connection with nature strong. 

Mark your calendars for our END OF SUMMER CAMP PARTY! Friday, August 9th 4-6pm
