Camp Age Groups

Sprouts

ages 4-6, including those who have completed kindergarten

As a Sprout, children experience the freedom of summer.  Our youngest campers have their own play yard where they can explore the climbing structures, play in a straw bale house, dig in the sand box, wander through the garden, or do crafts with a counselor.  Throughout the day counselors will offer other activities, such as grinding corn for the chickens, planting seeds, visiting the farm animals, making flower chains or splashing in the wading pool.

Young Stewards

ages 6-11, beginning with those who have completed first grade

Elementary aged children enjoy a week of being outside and doing purposeful work.  Young Stewards gather for a farmers’ meeting, often with a song and a game, before heading off to do their animal chores, like feeding the goats and collecting eggs from the chickens.  They also experience farm-based crafts, such as working with wool and making cheese.  Campers cool off on hot days with water games, and stories told under tall shady trees.
