What is Farm Camp Like?
Do you like to explore outside and get dirty? Are you interested in learning about farm animals and helping with farm chores? Are you curious about the garden and how to grow food? At Hart-to Hart Farm we learn by doing and engage your child’s curiosity about the farm, garden and wildlife that comes from being part of our working farm.
Each day, we start the morning off with circle time and stretching before heading out to do our morning farm chores. Following chores, campers spend special time training with their “adopted” animal. Then it’s off to explore and discovery the wonders of farm life through guided activities. The day ends with a closing circle and check in. With livestock barns, gardens, pastures, ponds and forest to explore, there is always something new to investigate every day.
Camp days are full and campers end the day a little tired and dirty but with a smile on their face.ent goes here, click edit button to change this text.
