Come join us for fun and learning at Millstream Farm Summer Camp. Children learn through nature based-literature, and child-centered, hands-on activities. They are given the opportunity to feed and care for the goats and chickens, as well as, to grow, harvest and eat organic vegetables from the abundant garden. Each day the children engage in the process of making a healthy snack.
Children work and play with beautiful materials from the local environment, keeping them connected with the natural world. They will engage in the colorful and purposeful task of handcrafting, including ‘felting’ with sheep’s wool, weaving with natural fibers, and making candles with beeswax.
The children enjoy local nature hikes, as well as, cooling their feet in the near by stream on hot summer days. In addition, there will be time for stories, singing, and engaging in independent play.
