Summer Camps for Future Farmers
2024 Camp Enrollment will open Friday, February 9th @ 10:00am.
Our farm camps will allow your child to explore the outdoors and life on a working farm! Throughout the week, children will have the opportunity to plant and harvest crops, care for our farm animals, participate in crafts and activities with other children, and enjoy the outdoors! We will learn the connection between the farmer and consumer, healthy eating habits, and the daily life and struggles of working on a farm. Farm camp kids will get a chance to pick items to bring home, create projects and make memories! Our goal is to create a fun and educational experience that connects children with their food and community!
Future Farmers Camps for Ages 6-12
Welcome to all "future farmers" and nature lovers to join us for a week of farm fun this summer! This program is for children ages 6-12 years old
What We Do
This camp session is geared towards children looking to get a "real-feel" of the life on a farm. Campers will get to enjoy a week in the life of a farmer at Ort Farms! We will take part in daily chores on the farm like tending to our animals, planting, and picking vegetables and fruit! We will spend time seeing how our family farm works including our farm stand and fieldwork. Children will get to learn a better understanding of where their food comes from, along with the business aspect and weather impacts that farmers face. We will also have plenty of fun with crafts, games and scavenger hunts!
Daily Agenda includes animal care, snacks, farm lessons, picking, planting, harvesting and lunch when applicable. We will also have a small amount of free play time. These sessions are ideal for active children who love to be hands on and aren't afraid to get a little dirty!
