Summer Camps

Farm Camps

Campers will experience hands-on animal care, helping with chores, feeding, gathering eggs and more.  In the garden campers will plant, cultivate and harvest seasonal vegetables.  Each day will focus on a different farm highlight in a 1900's setting.

Exploring nature is part of the fun.  Campers will search for animal tracks, exploring various habitats, and collect natural treasures.

There is a time for crafts, stories, games and a hayride.

Campers bring a bagged lunch and should wear sunscreen.  Snack is provided.
