Farm Stay

        June 22nd-June 26th 2020

July 6th-July 10th 2020

Program description:

This year due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to hold our overnight camp.  Instead, we are offering 2 weeks of day camp for 8-13 year olds.  Campers can sign up for one or both weeks, and we are limited to 10 children per camp.   Camp begins at 9 am and will end at 5 every day. Organic snacks and lunch will be provided.

Farm Stay is an action packed week!  Daily activities include: games, forest hikes, gardening, arts and crafts, outdoor adventures, siesta, swimming in the pond, journaling, and more.  Adventures we’ve done in the past include: fishing, hiking, farm scavenger hunt, natural building, and cooperative games. There is never a dull moment at farmstay! Most meals are vegetarian, all are organic, and all include farm-fresh produce. We break for snack often and meals are served family style.

Details:

Ages: 8-13 (at time of camp)

Cost: $250, Scholarships Available

Registration

If you would like to sign up for camp, please email info@whiteoakfarmcsa.org with your request. We will send you a registration form, a health form, and a release form. Please fill these out, include a check made out to White Oak Farm, and mail it to us at PO box 450 Williams, OR 97544. IMPORTANT: If your child has allergies, food sensitivities, or special needs, please alert us ASAP so we can plan accordingly. Feel free to call or email these needs at any point during the registration process.

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.

Note: If you or your child wants to visit the farm before signing up, we’d love to give you a tour! Please contact us to arrange a date and time.
