A Farm Introduction for 2017 is July 5,6,7
Three days of farm school for 4-9 Year Olds. Wednesday-Friday 9am-1pm.
During this short week children get a taste of all parts of the farm. They will do animal chores, cook food, weed the garden, and learn what it takes to run a farm. The day is a little shorter than the other weeks to allow smaller children who tire easier to experience the farm. The cost is $169 per child including a $30 no-refundable deposit.
A Full Farm Experience
Five days of farm school. Monday-Friday 9am-3pm.
The morning is spent doing animal chores, field work, cooking, and working in the garden. We eat a communal snack and lunch that the children prepare. Three times a day we also sing a variety of songs, often times in other languages! In the afternoon we will have game time. On Friday we ask parents to arrive half an hour early (2:30pm), the children will give a performance of the songs they have sung and receive a diploma recognizing all the hard work they have done.
Costs: $395 pr. child, a nonrefundable deposit of $30 is included in this. The deposit, registration and emergency forms are required to hold a spot. The cost is $365, if paid 30 days in advance in full. For children coming to a second week of school the costs $50 less than the first week for the child. The third (or more) weeks of school cost $100 less than the first camp. No sibling discounts for child number two in a family, but the third and fourth child is each half price. A few scholarships are given, so please ask.
Each week there are four helpers. These are children 12 and up who have been coming to the farm for 3 consecutive summers and are deemed eligible for helper status. The younger children greatly admire them and they make the day run smoother for the grownups. It is on a first come, first serve basis so sign up early for the weeks you want. There is also a $50 food fee for helpers per week. Ask if you believe your child is eligible.
