Program Description:

Days at Farm Camp are endless fun! Campers arrive in the morning to participate in welcome circle and songs, and then the adventure really begins. We tour the farm and greet our favorite furry and feathered friends. Next is a snack break followed by games and songs. Together, we create nature based farm crafts such as willow wreaths, cob creatures, and seed mandalas. After crafts, a break for lunch. Campers participate in harvest and food preparation. We provide morning snack and lunch made from farm fresh produce and organic ingredients. After lunch, we have a siesta: we read stories, rest, or participate in quiet drawing and coloring activities. During the heat of the day we play water games or explore the cool forest floor. The day closes with goodbye songs and new friends.

Camp Mission:

Here at White Oak Farm and Education Center, we care deeply about our region (and the planet as a whole) and our farm and camps reflect these values. Food is organic, home grown and locally sourced. Our crafts and activities are nature-based with an emphasis on respect and care for the land. We want kids to explore, create, and ask questions. Our goal is for children to have positive experiences on the farm, and leave with a greater appreciation for the cultivated and natural worlds!

Staff:

All camp staff are trained in CPR and First Aid. Each staff member has been trained in environmental education and also works during the school year as teaching staff for our “FarmSchool” field trip programs. In addition, staff are encouraged to use their strengths and interests to shape camp. For example, herbalists may make salve with the children and naturalists might lead a hike. Please see the staff bio section of the website for more information.
