Backbone Farm Day Camp is an on the farm, summer day camp for kids ages 5 – 13. Campers will experience the wonders of nature through farming, fun and artistic expression. Campers can expect to get their hands dirty as they learn what’s it’s like to be an organic farmer. They will spend time getting to know our pigs, cows, horses and other farm pets. They will learn how to grow vegetables, the benefits of humane livestock management, mycology and basic animal husbandry.
There will be time to quiet the mind and do a little yoga, journaling and time to create some “farm art” too. We will also provide plenty of time for the kids to be kids: playing in the creek, building forts and walking in the woods. And we will finish off each session with a pizza party for parents which the kids will pick, cook and serve. We hope your kids will join us!
