Summer adventure day camps!
Although school may be winding down, that doesn't mean learning has to! In fact, it is vital that it doesn’t. When students let their brains take a break over the summer, they can lose the equivalent of two months of their grade-level math and reading skills. In order to combat summer learning loss and keep those skills fresh over the summer, we have put together camps for children to continue their growth throughout the summer.
We are extremely excited about our summer adventure day camps! We bring fun interactive activities for all to enjoy and participate in. These camps not only offer the opportunity of a fun outdoor atmosphere, but your child will also be physically and mentally engaged. Check out our weekly camp themes below.
All summer camps are Monday - Thursday, 8:30 -11:30. The cost is $75.00 each week or regular monthly fee if your child stays all day. We will be closed July 1st - July 7th. You can choose to participate by week or you can sign up for the whole summer.
“ Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”
- Robert Louis Stevenson
DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE A CHILD?
Not being able to fall asleep because of the excitement of what the next day’s project is going to be? Our ART RAGOUS SUMMER CAMP is a popular camp filled with exciting hands-on projects using many different materials and S.T.E.A.M. challenges, all while enjoying our beautiful forty-acre property. The children will be making and designing Qixel robots, wind chimes, tie-dye t-shirts, and other fun projects. This camp starts June 10th and ends June 13th.
“COME AND GET IT!”
Why is food cooked outside always so good and what does it mean to be a Culinary Caveman?
This four day camp will literally bring something new to the table every day. We will be cooking over a campfire, using dutch ovens, making ice cream by hand, using solar heat to prepare a snack and even cooking underground. Your child will also perform food-related experiments and participate in foraging activities from our gardens and the surrounding property. This camp starts June 17th and ends June 20th.
SUPER SUMMER SCIENCE CHALLENGE
IS YOUR CHILD READY FOR THE CHALLENGE?
The SUPER SUMMER SCIENCE CHALLENGE is an interactive and exciting camp based on S.T.E.M.. In these four days your child will experience the joy of teamwork in addition to working on their own as they complete daily challenges and experiments. Some challenges will include marshmallow shooters, fizzing bath bombs, salt crystal feathers and much, much more. Throughout the morning our camp counselors will guide the children as they design, construct and refine their invention. At the end of the day we will test their creations and discuss theories.

“ Let us remember that animals are not mere resources for human consumption. They are splendid beings in there own right, who have evolved alongside us as co-inheritors of all the beauty and abundance of life on this planet.”
- Marc Bekoff
Every child loves animals and in our ANIMAL ANTICS SUMMER CAMP the kids will be able to get up close and have a hands-on learning experience with farm animals. They will raise and release pheasants, observe the shearing of a sheep and llama, care for and learn about rabbits and chickens, and build their own squirrel houses. This camp starts July 22nd and ends on July 25th.
OUR END OF SUMMER CELEBRATION IS HERE!
We celebrate the end of summer with a bang in our HARVEST FESTIVAL SUMMER CAMP! Our gardens and orchard are ready to harvest, so it’s time to have a party! The children will start the week by constructing a pinata using paper mache. We will make a stew with vegetables harvested from the garden, apple cobbler with apples harvested from our orchard, and snow cones to cool us down after all our hard work in the sun. Needless to say this is the absolute favorite camp of the summer. This camp starts on August 5th and ends August 8th.
