- 2017 KIDS FARM CAMP
The MOFGA certified organic Deri Farm and preserved farm land and nature trails of Skyline Farm are excited to welcome young farm friends to Farm Camp this summer! A special Kids Farm Camp will be offered for three sessions in June, July and August of 2017. The Kids Farm Camp program will be offered to 6-10 year olds for week long sessions and will be hosted by Justin Deri of Deri Farm, and Stephanie O'Neil of Farm to Table Kids and are thrilled to welcome children to the farm this summer to get their hands dirty and open their minds to the endless possibilities of summer on the farm!
Farm Camp days will be full of adventure, hands-on-education, fun with farm friends, and an emphasis on healthy harvest choices. A day at the farm will include morning yoga to welcome our farmers, then at morning meeting we will set the chores for the day (planting, weeding, harvesting), after chores children will harvest their own organic healthy snack from the garden, and in the afternoon the children will find shade in the tree-covered hiking trails of the forest or make crafts under our meeting tent to sell each Friday at The Farmstand. On the last day of each Farm Camp week the kids will be responsible for making their own farm stand. All kids love to play "store" and by opening our doors to their creativity for them to sell flowers they harvest, berries they pick, or crafts they made during the week, we are empowering them to feel like farmers, stewards of our land and active members of our community (proceeds from the Kids Farmstand will be donated to the School Backpack Program for food insecure families in our community). We are thrilled to farm with young members of our community and look forward to seeing you on the farm this summer!
