Fifty years ago, Mom and Dad would send the kids to spend the week on Grandma and Grandpa’s farm because they knew the exposure to the land, animals, and the food produced would enrich their lives.
To recreate this idyllic experience, I am eager to share my farm with your child (ages 8-14) at Farm Camp! It will be a chance to swap out stress-inducing screen time for the comforting rituals and daily rhythms of a working farm.
Campers will fully immerse themselves in farm life – feeding calves, collecting and washing eggs, riding a horse and a cow, playing with the goats, a donkey, a lamb, and pigs!
Farm Camp is a program of Learning Networks Foundation, which is the non-profit sister organization of Miles Smith Farm.
Farm Camp happens for two weeks:
July 11-15, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
July 18-22, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Monday through Friday with the option of early drop off (7:30 a.m.) and late pickup (until 5:30 p.m.)
Space is Limited
Here is a peek at the camp activities:
● Monday – Donkey, sheep, goats, mini-pigs, chickens
● Tuesday – Care for cows
● Wednesday – Horses
● Thursday – Cows
● Friday – Animal relay race
Cool Off in the Mini-Pool EVERY DAY!
I hope to see your child on our farm this summer!
