Theme Descriptions

Bugs and Biomes
Campers will explore the farm’s ecosystem through the interconnectedness and unique roles of all the creatures present, such as pollinators, beetles, butterflies, chickens, worms, birds, soil food web inhabitants and wildlife. Campers will observe patterns and life-cycles in our garden and investigate how caring for the environment affects the health of the farm ecosystem. This week builds skills in observation, critical thinking and interpersonal skills.

Foodology
Campers will dive deeper into the field-to-fork connection by growing, tending, harvesting, preparing and processing veggies and berries right out of the garden. Campers carry out taste-tests, investigate how to read and alter a recipe, and learn how to make healthy, delicious, and sustainable choices. This week builds life skills, responsibility and critical thinking, as well as the concept of cause and effect.
