Junior Farmer

The Junior Farmer camp is for children going into Pre-K who are ready to be a part of a farm summer. The camp will be four weeks, with each week exploring all different aspects of the farm! Campers can choose to be part of Junior Farmer on a daily or weekly basis. In addition to the theme-related activities and explorations each week, time will also be spent with the older children in pasture and at lunch/recess, as well as plenty of outdoor water time! Afternoons will typically be spent outside playing in different water areas, such as water slides and spray areas. Lunches will be outdoor picnics and play time.

Items to Bring Daily: Lunch, snacks, plenty of water, change of clothes-including socks and underwear, swimsuit, towel, sunscreen. A life jacket should be sent on day 1 to stay at school for their time at camp. Please apply sunscreen prior to arriving to camp and send extra to reapply.

Sessions and Dates

   - Session One: June 4th-8th
"Intro to Farm Week"
Week one will be all about what we know and what we want to learn
about the farm! We will spend our week reading stories, playing games,
and making art. What do we get from the farm? Who lives on the farm?
What is used on the farm?

   - Session Two: June 11th-15th
"Farm Animals Week"
Week two will be our first week of studying the farm animals.
Animal-themed crafts, games, stories, and activities will fill this
"farmtastic" week. The kids will participate in lots of fun movement
activities related to the way different animals move, what makes the
animals different, and how some animals are the same.

   - Session Three: June 18th-22nd
"Farm Animals Week Part 2"
Week three we will discover the rest of the farm animals, and begin to
look at how they contribute to the farm. The kids will have lots of
opportunities for dramatic play. Kids will definitely get the chance
to meet real life animals while learning to be kind to animals! Of
course, art, stories, and songs will keep us busy as bees.

   - Session Four: June 25th-29th
"Farm Work Week"
Week four will really give kids the opportunity to see all the work a
farm takes to operate. A lot of our songs, games, and activities this
week will center around farmers, farm equipment, and the food we get
from the farm. These stories will inspire crafts and snacks that will
fill our week with fun and even some farm chores.
