NEW! Sprouting Chefs Camp
This new cooking camp is all about fun in the kitchen! Through hands-on entertaining and interactive cooking experiences, little chefs learn the basics of food preparation, safe cooking techniques, and healthy eating. Children discover how to create and enjoy great food and the important role agriculture plays in their everyday lives, as well as take care of indoor plants and an outdoor garden. This experience would not be complete without a visit of the farm animals to learn the role they play in this great adventure!
Kinder Farm Camp
In a working farm setting, children encounter all of the farm animals they’ve heard about in nursery rhymes and stories. They even get to take care of the rabbits in their camp activity room! Through music, crafts, co-operative games, and ice cream making, campers explore every nook and cranny of the Museum’s barns, exhibitions, and gardens!
Fun at the Farm Camp
Kids discover what makes farming fun. By “adopting” a cow for a week and being the “mother hen” for newly hatched chicks, campers learn what it means to care for animals. Nature studies, crafts, games, and more fill your child’s days with fresh air and fun!
City Farm Camp
Campers get hands-on experience as they brush, feed, and clean rabbits, help to feed the sheep, and tend their own garden. Campers also have fun making ice cream and playing eco games in the Arboretum!
Junior Farmer Camp
Perfect for “farmers-in-the-making” who live in the city, here’s a chance for youth to take part in a real, working farm! Campers “adopt” a calf, feed and groom it, muck out the stalls, and learn more about the agriculture industry.
Camps sell out quickly—reserve early!
