What:… Farm Camp will Consist of 4 days of lessons including:
Things with Wings... Pollinators, Birds, & Butterflies Friends or Foe!
Bats, butterflies & other flying friends will be the topic of this day. We will discuss whether or not these winged creatures are good for a farm. By spending time in the fields and pastures, we will look at natural habitats and create some of our own to lure them our way.
What Came First... Life with Chickens on a Farm!
You will get up close and personal with the chickens on our farm! We get more then just great eggs from them... and you will learn all about what else they do.
It's Alive... Seeds- All about the Crops at Cecil Creek!
A seed is a plant waiting to grow; it is alive! We will learn about the needs of a seed and the biology of plants. We will use experiments to observe how different environments affect the growth of a seed. By spending extra time in our Garden, using our tongues to taste their goodness and our hands to craft them, we hope to give seeds a new reputation.
Creek Explorers... Importance of Clean Water and How to Conserve it!
Let's get our feet wet & learn all about the life in the creek, how to keep it clean and healthy!
So sign up your “Farmer” and get ready for a farm filled summer of learning and having fun!
