Assistant Farmer Camp

August 15 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until August 19, 2022



Assistant Farmers (ages 9-12) will spend mornings on the farm, learning about the different animals and plants living here. We’ll do morning ‘chores’ each day and then pick a particular animal (like a lamb, goat, chicken or rabbit) to learn more about and do an activity centered around. Activities might include working with your individual sheep over the course of the week, learning how to milk a goat, experience how much fun ducks are and more. We’ll explore the natural habitats at Henny Penny and embrace all the bounty that Mother Nature has to offer. Children will also work on a craft project combining elements of the farm (branches, wool, plants and more) that they will bring home at the end of the week.  Children round out their day working on their daily personal farmer log where they will put in photos and descriptions from their day.  It will promote further interesting conversations and exploration after camp finishes.

Please note camp runs from August 15-19 9am-2pm each day. $325 members, $375 non-members. The registration is for the whole week (not just one day).

Please also note that while the registration fee is not refundable you may transfer it to another child (that fits in the age group selected) once you notify us of the change.

Along with our Shepherd and Supporter of the Farm Members, last year’s camp families enjoy an exclusive registration window to summer camps for 1 week before camps are released to the mailing list and then public.

Registration Open for Shepherd Members, Supporter of the Farm Members and Last Year’s Camp Families Sunday January 23 6am

Registration Open for Public January 30 6am.
