Our Agriventure Farm Camp runs on a weekly basis throughout the months of July and August.
Our Agriventure Day Camp is a summer day camp for 6 to 12 year olds and runs in one week sessions for July and August. Normal camp hours are from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm with the opportunity for extended care between 8 and 5:15.
Agriventure JR is a NEW offering. It is available sessions 2, 4, 6, 8 and is for children who are JK/SK and grade one ages. This is an opportunity for younger children who perhaps feels “too old” to do daycare in the summer now that they have had an experience of school! We will have a special staff member trained and experienced in this age group to provide additional support to our Jr. participants when integrated with the larger camp PLUS offer special activities JUST for them!
We have an exceptional staff of University students or recent graduates to mentor and support your child while giving them an amazing and fun experience when here. Campers enjoy a variety of hands-on learning activities including gardening; harvesting produce; cooking with Steckle Homestead recipes; playing games; crafting and getting to know and take care of our farm animals.
There will be some new opportunities to be experienced in 2012, and great new chances to get your hands dirty and really have a farm adventure!
