What's Included

Who doesn't love harvesting fresh blackberries, cherries, and plums? We will climb trees and trek into the bushes in search of the most delicious berries. Smoothies, fruit bars, or popsicles are only the beginning! This isn't your typical day camp! Campers are encouraged to try new things, learn real life skills, and take on real responsibility; and our educators are passionate, knowledgeable, and engaging! The farm is a magical oasis located in a community rich with farming and fishing history. Campers will discover the wonder of life on the farm while learning basic skills such as caring for hens, goats, horses, honey bees, ducks and other mysterious farm fauna, germinating seeds and growing, harvesting and preparing seasonal foods. Campers will also take part in farm activities such as wild-crafting, and hands-on science experiments. Our instructors are passionate about a wide range of subjects and this allows us to engage each child's curiosity (from cooking, ethnobotany, and languages, to animal husbandry, agroecology, and building). The camps focus is largely determined by the dynamic and special interests of each camps' participants (some weeks may choose to run their own farm market! and spend the week preparing baked goods and preserves, harvesting wild and cultivated foods, advertising, and preparing a market display!)
