Farm Camp (Seasonal)

Is This You?

Do you love farm life? We look for fun, friendly individuals who can command groups of school-age children and create an atmosphere of adventure and learning. Farm Camp offers an opportunity to educate the youth of today about farm life. So many children do not have the chance to experience the lifestyle of growing your own food. Center Grove Orchard will provide a week-long session educating children on growing crops and caring for livestock. Our farm grows many different crops, and this is a great chance to show others first hand how we grow apples, sunflowers, pumpkins, corn, soybeans, and hay. We also raise goats, sheep, cattle, chickens, ducks, pigs, donkeys, and horses. Farm Camp runs four weeks total, Monday through Friday, with a new session each week.

Farm Camp Job Overview

Farm Camp Counselor: You will teach school-age children on a range of topics including: care of animals (feeding, cleaning pens, interacting with newborn animals); walking fields to show how crops grow (corn, soybeans, apples, sunflowers, strawberries) and byproducts of the crops; explore the farm and its environment including creeks and ponds; overseeing activities such as our Super Slides, Jumping Pillows; and explaining soil erosion and how to control it. You will lead the kids in craft projects and assist them in completing them. Patience is essential.

This morning we went to the chicken coop to gather the eggs and this is what we found! 🐀 Our chickens are so full of "yolks".
