Farm to Table Kids is so excited to welcome young farm friends to Farm Camp for another awesome summer at the farm! Farm Camp will offer 8 weeks of programs throughout the summer months for 5-12 year olds. Each week long session will be hosted by Stephanie McDonough of Farm to Table Kids. Stephanie has been farming with children for 8 years and it is her passion and love in life. She is thrilled to welcome children to the farm this summer to get their hands dirty and open their minds to the endless possibilities of summer on the farm!
Farm Camp days will be full of adventure, hands-on-education, fun with farm friends, and an emphasis on healthy harvest choices. A day at the farm will include morning yoga to welcome our farmers, then at morning meeting we will set the chores for the day (planting, weeding, harvesting). After chores, children will harvest their own organic healthy snack from the garden. In the afternoon, the children will find shade in the tree-covered hiking trails of the forest or make crafts under our meeting tent to sell each Friday at “The Farmstand”. On the last day of each Farm Camp week, the kids will be responsible for making their own farm stand. This allows them the creative opportunity to sell flowers they harvest, berries they pick, or crafts they made during the week – all while empowering them to feel like farmers, stewards of our land and active members of our community. We are thrilled to farm with young members of our community and look forward to seeing you on the farm this summer!
