1/2 day mornings
Sessions: 1-10

Where does your food come from? Before you can buy it at the store, it is grown on the farm! In this half-day camp, campers will learn the basics of farm family routines by pitching in with chores, like taking care of chickens and making ice cream. Each day will start with a story followed by visits to our historic sites and crafts made from recycled materials.

Activity Highlights: Take care of chickens at 1900 Farm, shop in General Store, make ice cream, plant seeds, play in creek
