Summer Camps at New Village Farm

Mon, Jun 11 at 9am

Our Farm and Garden Camps for 5 - 11 year olds are our favorite and longest running program. We strive to provide children with time in nature, interaction with animals, the freedom to learn and grow from experiences, and time and space to breathe deep. We are also committed to their participation in the care for the animals, gardens, and farm spaces. It is our hope that every child return home at the end of a camp day knowing themselves to be capable and competent, and aware that their presence mattered.

Mornings at farm camp are spent working with animals as we collect eggs from chickens, milk goats, and perform other related tasks. At the farm, children engage in real hands-on work that is meaningful, engaging, and most importantly, fun!        

After our animal chores, we focus on activities related to our weekly theme, and our afternoons allow for plenty of free time whether it's spent crafting, jumping on hay bales, visiting baby goats, or simply running around being a kid.

Mornings at farm camp are spent working with animals as we collect eggs from chickens, milk goats, and perform other related tasks.

During Fiber Arts Week, we look to nature for all its remarkable fiber sources. Campers will gather cattails from the nearby marsh, and use them to weave a cattail mat, make cordage, or even create a cattail doll. If cattail creations aren't their thing, then campers can use the wool from our Icelandic sheep to make wool bracelets, or simply spin yarn. Other fiber projects we have done in the past include dying fabrics using natural materials found on the farm, making milkweed figurines, and creating wooden jewelry.

Mornings at farm camp are spent working with animals as we collect eggs from chickens, milk goats, and perform other related tasks.

Campers will undertake the clay process from the Earth to artifact. First, we will dig clay from the farm, clean it, wedge it, and prepare it for sculpting. Then, campers will sculpt their own clay creations whether it's a pinch pot, or a more elaborate dragon scultpure. Then on Thursday, we will build a fire to dry out our clay creations, and after that we will paint our clay masterpieces!

Mornings at farm camp are spent working with animals as we collect eggs from chickens, milk goats, and perform other related tasks.

Easily the most delicious week of camp, Culinary Week is filled with various edible creations that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters! We generally start out the week by simply taste testing different items from the gardens whether its a cherry tomatoe or a sprig of tarragon, and follow by talking about where our food comes from. The rest of the week is filled with hands-on cooking, and culinary experimenting. Dishes we have made during past culinary weeks include Dutch oven mac and cheese, garden salads, caprese, roasted veggies, pizza, and much more. And of course, we always have time to make sun tea——a camper favorite!

Mornings at farm camp are spent working with animals as we collect eggs from chickens, milk goats, and perform other related tasks.

A new theme this year! Craft and Construct Week is about working on larger projects together. In the past, campers have built the famous "Stick Fort," a stick structure in the woods on the farm, so we thought it would be cool to have a whole week dedicated to hands-on creating. Whether it's a new rope bridge, a tipi, or perhaps an idea that hasn't been thought of yet, campers will work together to create a lasting structure at the farm, and forge a new legacy. However, if building isn't your cup of tea, we will have plenty of options for making various crafts, be it cordage or a fairy house.

During Marsh Week, campers will have the option to go in the farm's marsh, and explore the intricate ecosystem that it contains. Catching frogs, playing in the mud, and just splashing around are all welcomed activities. Or if going in the marsh isn't appealing, then creating boats out of cattails, and making other marshy crafts are also great activities.
