Little Farmers' Summer Camp entails a variety of fun activities for children ages 3-12. For summer camp, our facility is split into three rooms and children are grouped by age. The preschool rooms consists of 3-5 year olds and our school age room consists of 6-12 year olds. Regardless of which classroom your child is in, they are put in groups of no more than 8 children per teacher with children around their age group. We have a 32 child maximum (daily).
Throughout the summer, we teach children about farming and agriculture through a variety of hands on activities and visuals. Our goal is to trigger curiosity about the farming industry. Demonstrations may be performed by professionals such as sheep/alpaca shearers, horse farriers, and goat milkers. Children have the opportunity to hold, pet, and have full interaction with all of the animals we have to offer. Children also get to witness the birthing of all types of animals, hatch eggs, watch the life cycles of the animals we breed at our farm, learn the ins and outs of cleaning a barn and much more! All animals are seen annually by the vet, their documentation is on site and we are licensed by the USDA as Class C exhibitors of animals.
There is a $30 registration fee per child. The registration fee and summer form must be mailed in to hold your child's spot. You can pay for camp weekly or in full via cash or check. Payment must be received prior to children's attendance. All schedules are set in stone as of June 1st, 2017.

Please understand that because we are a licensed child care center, the state regulations state that we provide a "quiet time" if the program runs longer than 5.5 hours. Therefore, after lunch, all children will participate in a one hour quiet period. At this time, preschoolers will lay down and watch a movie while the big kids also have the option to watch a movie in their room or do quiet activities (coloring, legos, puzzles, reading).
