MARY'S LAND SUMMER CAMP
Mary’s Land Farm Summer Camp promotes healthy relationships between people, animals, plants, the earth, and one’s self by demonstrating how each living thing is unique and valuable and its dignity ought to be respected accordingly. Through hands-on farm activities, environmental discoveries, mindfulness activities, and outdoor play, campers will build these healthy relationships and grow to understand their unique place in the world and their delicate relationships with the life around them.
We nurture your little ones as they experience the farm from a smaller person’s perspective. They participate in farm life through their senses, holding animals, digging in the dirt, and asking questions. We oversee their petting the animals, collecting eggs, handling chicks, learning about bugs and insects, tasting the veggies in the garden, creating art projects, and listening to stories. Our wee sprouts come bright eyed and bushy tailed each morning, eager to learn and reluctant to leave.
Our young campers get to experience all facets of farm life with age appropriate opportunities. They love participating in farm chores whether it is grooming the ponies or feeding the chickens. We encourage connection with the land and the animals, and provide daily experiences that increase their knowledge through hands-on, experiential learning. Seeing the sparkle in their eyes as they arrive each morning tells us we are doing something right.
The perfect fit for active early teens. Farm experiences allow them to learn about biology and agriculture, horticulture and husbandry from their daily electives and experiences. Skills are developed that benefit them all year long, instilling confidence as they learn all about cooperative farming and working together. Daily farm life is an adventure in itself to this crew!
