Summer Day Camps at the Farm!
Ballyntyne Learning Farm is so thrilled to announce that we will be offering day summer camps at the farm! These day camps are intended for your curious kids who want to learn from the outdoors, play, be creative, and build friendships with other kiddos.
Activities: Get ready for lots of fun activities, project, and experiments this summer. See below for some of the things that kids may partake in:
Forest play (building tepees, weaving, hiking, habitats, carrying capacity, lichens, mosses, and creating mosaics)
Water investigations (collecting water samples at the creek, testing ph levels, inspecting for microscopic life, pollution activities)
Learning in the garden (pollinators, planting, harvesting, insect life, soil and rock investigations)
Science experiments (exploding, bubbling, fizzing, assembling outdoor ovens, and more!)
Building and skill projects (birdhouses, kite building, pulleys, compass play, geocaching, map making, and more!)
*Please note that the above is not a complete list and specific activities may be tweaked or adapted but the camps will certainly be filled with fun things for your kids to learn and take part in!
Throughout the day summer camp, we will focus on safety, working in teams, fostering positive and encouraging communication between the kiddos, and having a great time!
Details: These day camps are 3 days long and are intended for children ages 5-9 years old. The camp attendance will be capped at 15 children per day will last from 9 am to 1 pm with a mid-morning snack break as well as time for lunch. Parents are encouraged to drop their kids off for the morning with pickup starting at 12:45 pm.
Dates: There will be two summer camp offerings this year. **Dates for the 2020 summer camp will be announced soon**
Things to remember: Please dress kids in layers as mornings can be a bit cooler. Sunscreen, water, closed-toed shoes, as well as rubber boots, are encouraged. Please bring a mid-morning snack as well as a lunch for your child. *Extra snacks will be available just in case there are some extra hungry kiddos! Most importantly, arrive with the expectation of having a fun, engaging, and memorable day! :)
