NATURE’S PLACE!

AGES 4-6 AND 1ST-5TH GRADE

An homage to our first ever farm camp here at Rocky Creek, this week campers will form a deep relationship with the natural areas of the farm, and explore the connections between nature and farming. The forests, grasslands, and marshes will provide the backdrop for creative play, art, and science as campers learn to thrive in the wild. Like coyotes or deer, campers will dash onto the farm for a quick snack, but their home for the week will remain in the woods.

 

JULY 29-AUGUST 2

WATER WEEK!

AGES 4-6 AND 1ST-5TH GRADE

Water splashes through this week of aquatic exploration. See the farm from the perspective of the water that brings it all to life! Starting from the Rocky Creek, the water moves into our fields and pastures and fills our produce and animals. Campers will follow water’s path and discover the creatures and plants, both wild and domestic, that rely on this vital resource.

 

AUGUST 5-9

FARMING FOODIES!

AGES 4-6 AND 1ST-5TH GRADE

This week campers will become the ultimate foodies, exploring all of the foods produced on the farm and learning new and exciting culinary skills. We will follow the cycle of food from seed to table as we harvest and prepare tasty items from around the farm. Hope you’re hungry!

 

AUGUST 12-16

FLOWERS!

AGES 4-6 AND 1ST-5TH GRADE

Flowers are beautiful in sight and scent, but they are also so much more! Come bask in the beauty of flowers as we discover the power of pollinators, the delicacy of edible blossoms, and the many ways to create art from flowers. This week is sure to delight the senses!

FARMER’S GUILD!

AGES 4-6 AND 1ST-5TH GRADE

This week, campers will form a farmers guild consisting of artists, craftspeople, thespians, and naturalists.
