Children Entering Grades 1-4

9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Maple Sugar House

Immerse your camper in the daily chores and activities of our Heckscher Farm in this interactive program. Campers will be responsible for helping with daily chores such as grooming, exercising, feeding, and cleaning farm animals, and will also help with weekly produce harvest and planting in our organic garden. Learn how to properly exercise and provide enrichment for animals, explore our hay lofts and barns, and hang out in the pastures! Kids will also participate in hands-on cooking and farm crafts, and will work as a team to create a special tasty treat that they will share on Fridays for lunch.

Campers will be outside on the Heckscher Farm, except in most inclement weather, and should bring a daily peanut/tree nut-free lunch and snack. Limited to 10 campers per week for a great small group experience. Campers may register for more than one session if desired. Some activities may be the same each week but the weeks will not be completely identical.
