This summer, we have divided the four year olds from the regular Sprouts camp. We will have 2 counselors for each group of eight four year old sprouts. We undersant this is most likely your child’s first camp experience. Sprouts 4 will have less demanding activities than the Sprouts 5-6 and will include a slow down story/nap time. Sprouts 4 will still get plenty of time to interact with the farm animals.
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! New this year we have added a program for cooking in the wilderness, studying the stars to navigate, and basic survival pointers.
