Summer Farm Camp

L&A Family Farms hosts summer farm camps for students interesting in learning about life on the farm!


We host a few different camps for kids entering kindergarten through 6th grade during the month of June. The camps will be split into two age groups, covering information about soil, plants, and animals. Details on each camp follow:


Grades K-3 Camp 

Participants will experiment with soil, start a sunflower patch for kids, take home their own seeds and plants, sample produce from the garden, gather eggs, and learn about protecting animals from predators.


Grades 4-6 Camp 

Participants will conduct a soil sample, do light gardening, sample farm produce, learn about pollinators, and create their own lip balm from beeswax or design their own farm tool.


In addition, both camps will feature an obstacle course and an escape room as a final activity! 

Those in attendance should bring a small backpack, water, and tennis shoes to wear.

The fee to attend camp is $60 per student.

The registration deadline for 2019's camps was June 14th.
