Little Roots Gardening & Farm Camp Description
We are providing a week long gardening & farm themed summer camp! We will provide hands on learning, in the garden and with farm animals. Each day will be spent actually digging in the garden, feeding the animals, making fun garden projects, arts and crafts, river adventures, and time to explore!
We will be creating projects each day that your camper will be able to take home at the end of the week, these include (but are not limited to) worm jars, fairy houses, toad abodes, garden journals, butterfly feeders, grass hut houses, microgreen planters, etc. We hope that each child walks away from the week with knowledge on how to start growing their own garden, maintaining a garden, maintaining small animal pens, learning to care for small farm animals, and newfound friendships!
Friday is WATER DAY & Dress Up Day! We will have a fun water day with a water slide, splash pad, kiddie pools, and smores for the first part of the day 😊 If they are staying for a whole day, we will be re-creating a REAL LIFE Jane Austen garden tea party (with dress up clothes) and REAL LIFE hobbit themed build-your-own-nature-home (with dress up clothes) in the afternoon. I am SO excited to see the imagination take over for this event!
We alternate the garden and art projects we create each week for the age groups. This will give him/her an opportunity to enjoy multiple sessions!
