The Barn Yard Summer Camp Information.
A Day as a Farmer: children will start the day with some barn yard stretches to get the blood flowing. Followed by the morning stretch, they will feed the animals and tend to the garden. A daily educational theme will lead the garden exercise. After the morning “chores” the children will harvest and prep their lunch.
Farm Crafts: children will spend time in the field and in the woods to make farm themed crafts. Examples are garden stepping stones, wind chimes, homemade paper, lip balm and more
The Camp Leaders
Misse Axelrod, Farmer/Owner: Misse has been farming and working with children for 15 years. Not only does Misse manage her farm and camps, she is also the Farm to School Coordinator for the Washington South Supervisory Union-teaching children cooking and growing food. Her love for teaching little hands the art of growing and cooking food stems from the belief that everyone should experience the joy of Farm to Plate. The more kids experience food, the more likely they will be to develop healthy eating habits.
