ART Farm Camp 2018

WHAT will kids experience?

     Campers spend their days exploring our diverse organic farmstead - the barn, the fields and forest, the animals, and the gardens.  We care for the animals, work in the garden, play games, read stories, explore the creek, and work on art projects.  During lunch we talk about whole foods and where they come from.  Each Friday there is a show for parents at 1:30.  Price is $250 per one-week session.  Sessions are limited to 15, so please get in touch right away.  Scholarships available.
