FARM CAMP

Kids ages 4-12 are invited to join us for our first-ever Farm Camp this Spring! Campers will enjoy STEM-based activities, arts and crafts, singing, and nature play as they build community and learn where their food comes from.

Activities will include:
• Farm “chores” – weeding, seeding, transplanting, composting, harvesting, raking, digging
• Arts and crafts – flower pressing, lavender drying, and painting
• Cooking time – making salad, ice cream, and egg dishes
• Science experiments – comparing seeds and soil
• Learning from farmers
• Learning farm songs and stories
• Mindful practice of listening to nature

Spring Farm Camp Sessions are Monday – Friday from 9am-3pm. Session dates:
• April 1-5
• April 8-12
• April 15-19

Cost: $250 per session. Early bird pricing is $225 per session (sign up by March 3!)
Cancellation policy: full refund offered for cancellation up to 2 weeks before the start of the session.
