Summer Fun at the Farm
Have you ever spent an early morning walking between rows of growing vegetables and smelling the fragrance of fresh greens mingling with the soil they are grown in? Have you ever made your own paint from the stamens of flowers or cooked and eaten food that you have just harvested? Well, if you join us at Unquowa’s Summer Farm Camp, these will be just a few of the ways in which you will learn to understand the relationship between the foods we eat and where they come from.
Full Day – Campers Entering Grades 2-7
In addition to the art, cooking and environmental science classes taught right here on our campus, campers will travel to organic farms and local community gardens. We will harvest local produce and experience first hand what it is like to run and work on an organic farm. While planting, irrigating, and harvesting both produce and eggs, campers will learn the importance of organic farming for the planet and the health benefits to themselves. Much of the food will be brought back to Unquowa for campers to use in preparing their lunches with our chefs’ help.
Each afternoon we will prepare our own locally sourced lunch followed by an art class, with a focus on art in nature and a science class centered round the theme of sustainability and the environment. Classes are all taught by experts in their field.
Sweet Peas – Campers Entering PreK-4, Kindergarten and Grade 1
Our youngest campers, those entering grades PreK-4, kindergarten and grade 1, have the option of either a full or half day here at our campus. Led by experienced teachers, these campers will get to experience everything our older campers do, excluding field trips. They will work in our own raised beds, experience nature through science and art, and enjoy cooking classes with our school’s chef.
Throughout this experience, we hope to instill in your child our school’s philosophy: we are all stewards of this earth, and it is our responsibility to live sustainable lifestyles and to realize that our behaviors and choices affect our planet. Our goal is to instill this philosophy through education, which we believe will cultivate a feeling of respect and a natural passion to protect all things in nature. This desire can be nurtured through the authentic exposure our program offers.
