Camp Descriptions

2nd-3rd grade

Farms and Gardens

Are farms and gardens really that different? How does the food we eat reach our plate? You will answer these questions as you delve into the world of growing food. Try your hand at planning a garden and planting seeds. Explore how different people have cared for the land and what conservation methods were being used from the Native Americans through today. Make garden inspired snacks, and explore the role of pollinators.


4th-5th grade

People of the Prairie

Starting with the Native Americans and going through today, discover who came to Iowa and how different cultures have made the state what it is. Make crafts, cook traditional foods, participate hands-on, and visit some of our historical sites to get an in-depth look at these people.
