Summer Camp

Each day offers new ideas and activities! One day we may be making pickles, and the next day inventing a new ice cream flavor. We may go minature frog collecting, or attempting to teach some of the more social animals new tricks. The older children are encouraged to participate in the entrepreneur program and come up with ideas for products to be sold at the farm stand on Fridays.

 

As a farm we are always on top of the weather and will adjust schedules accordingly. The farm offers its own micro-climates and activity spaces so we have lots of flexibility in our activities. Barn games might include "steal the bacon", potato sack races, corn hole, or a game we actually build and play such as "four in a row". Every child will have a chance to go gemstone mining. Every Friday we invite the parents to come at 2pm to participate in the famous chicken race, Maple View ice cream, and see what their campers have been up to all week!  Essentially a child can spend all 11 weeks at the camp and each week will be exciting and somewhat different!

 

Junior campers will arrive at a separate entrance than the all-day camp and will play throughout the day in their own areas. The ratio is two teachers per 10-14 children. Children will have access to sprinkler play, an air conditioned space and plenty of shade on our natural preschool playground and forest area.
