The easy rhythms of the farm will carry the children from chores to play and back again throughout the day.  Hands will be immersed in mud and water, berries and brambles, as the children experience fully through their senses.  Days will become adventures as children explore the forest, turning nature into paint, mossy bark into fairy homes, and holes into hideouts.

Bright and early each day, campers will care for the farm animals, feeling the daily cycles of farm life and contributing to the raising of food.   Their hands will plant the fall crops, tend the summer vegetables and take part in harvesting and preparing for the farmer’s market.  Throughout the week, campers will go on adventures in the forest, discovering the joys of time spent in nature and the lessons the Earth has to teach.  Their week will conclude with an overnight spent under the stars.
