YOUTH SUMMER DAY CAMP INFO
Children Ages 5 – 12
ANIMAL EXPLORERS FARM CAMP
Your little animal lover will want to join us for summer camp. No two weeks are the same as barn life changes from week to week with new babies born throughout the entire summer. Animal Explorers will work in teams and learn about animal husbandry of rabbits, emus, chickens, mini horses, mini donkeys, and quail. Camp is a hands-on FUN experience where all campers assist with animal care and become the expert of their favorite farm animal. On the last day of camp, campers give their parents/guardians a tour of the farm teaching them everything they learned throughout the week. This is an amazing opportunity for campers to build their self-confidence as leaders.
