KENSINGTON METROPARK FARM CENTER – Map Me
June 18 – 21
Farm Camp offers children a memorable experience and the opportunity to discover the wonders of life on the farm. Each day will offer a new adventure. The camp is very much hands-on and provides children with farm experiences that will leave a lasting impression. Campers will participate in daily farm chores as well as various organized activities. Planned activities may include: outdoor adventures like fishing, hikes (with goats!) and scavenger hunts; craft projects such as candle-dipping, pierced tin, and paper mache; pioneer life experiences like barn-raising, rope skills, or playing old-fashioned games; milking a cow or goat; or grooming and harnessing draft horses before going for a horse-drawn hayride.
The farm staff is looking forward to sharing the sights, sounds, and smells of a real working farm with the campers. The day includes many different activities, most of which are held outside. The following tips are included to ensure everyone has a fun-filled experience at the farm.
