A Few Notes about the Little Seed Program:
Campers should be 3 years old at time of session and must be potty trained to attend our Little Seeds program.
This is the only program that offers half and full day, and 2-, 3- or 5-day options. It is designed for preschool aged campers. The rhythm of our day is offered at a slower pace that allows for lots of time for play-based adventures on the farm. Learning is presented in a subtle, but sweet and engaging manner. Full day campers have an afternoon story time in an air conditioned classroom. Many campers fall asleep during story time while others quietly enjoy the stories offered in the theme-based books. Although campers must be potty trained to attend this camp, our staff will assist during bathroom times and with self-care tasks. Bathroom breaks are encouraged throughout the day.
In many cases, summer camp is the first time little ones will be away from their parents. Although we accept campers as young as age 3, it is important that parents evaluate the readiness of their child(ren) to attend before registering for summer camp. We are unable to refund tuition for non-attendance for any reason during the camp session.
Child development is as unique as each individual child. If your child is accustomed to a school setting, comfortable interacting with older children, and has the stamina to embrace a full day of activities, please check out our Roots & Boots Program for ages 5 & 6. Campers enrolled in Roots & Boots should have a developed some level of independence in self care skills such as changing clothes and shoes, and using bathroom facilities. Feel free to contact our camp office if you have questions about which program might best serve your child.

Little seeds to sow. Add some dirt to make them grow. Mix in some sun and quite a few showers. With love and care the seeds become flowers!
Through farm-based activities, campers will explore the beauty of the plant and animal kingdoms. Songs, stories, circle time, movement games, hands-on group activities, puppet plays, natural crafting, and free play will provide age appropriate outdoor experiences.
Campers will bring their own morning snack and lunch to enjoy on the farm. The farm will provide late afternoon snack for full day campers. Half-day and full-day programs are offered. This program fills up quickly, so register early to reserve your child's space.

Our summer camp offers programs for four age groups and the daily schedules are designed to support the developmental needs of the growing child from early childhood through early adolescence. We believe our multi-age camps provide the habitat for children to grow, develop a more enriching sense of community, instill the virtue of compassion, and serve the needs of all of our campers regardless of age and skill level.
Our summer programs Little Seeds (Ages 3-5 1/2), Roots & Boots (Ages 5 & 6), Farm & Forest Friends (7-9) and Sowers & Growers (Ages 10-13) operate independently within our camp facility. The age groups have different rotating activities to focus on age-appropriate skills and educational learning opportunities. Campers ages 7-13 are together for some group activities and special presentations.
