Farm Camp – SOLD OUT 4 Sessions, from June 7 - July 2

What is Farm Camp?

Farm Camp is a week-long summer day camp that offers an opportunity to educate children about farm life while forming friendships and developing a love for farming! Campers will experience hands-on fun and have the opportunity to:

  • Care for animals – feeding, training and cleaning
  • Learn about growing crops – riding hayride to fields to examine plants, soil and weeds
  • Explore the farm and its environment including creeks and ponds
  • Discover the by-products of our many crops – corn, soybeans, pumpkins, apples, cherries, and strawberries
  • Connect the importance of science to agriculture
  • Play – enjoying our fun activities such as our Super Slides, Jumping Pillows and more
  • Make and take fun crafts

Farm Camp is designed for children ages 6 to 12 years of age (at the time of camp).
