Description

PIZZA MAKING, "EGGCELLENT EGGS", OLD SCHOOL PHYSICAL GAMES, FARM ANIMALS AND BEES!

Camp for ages 4-11 yrs

PIZZA MAKING - Participants will grind flour by hand to create pizza dough rich in nutrients. To make the sauce, tomatoes will be harvested from the field and combined with fresh basil and spices. Possibly the freshest pizza in town!

OLD SCHOOL PHYSICAL GAMES - Games from days past will be resurrected this week at Freedom Farm. Potatoe sack races, three legged races, tug-o-war and so much more! The idea is to evoke extreme fun and excitement with very little. We believe that the "art of simple play" is being lost due to shifts and changes of this generation. This one will definately become a favorite!

FARM ANIMALS AND BEES - Our last week of 2017 camps will close with a final unit on all of the creatures on the farm and their value as farm animals as well as their value to humans. Did you know that studies show that people who interact with animals are proven to become more loving, empathetic? We will connect all creatures as a system and increase campers awareness to the importance of the symbiotic relationship of each. This may sound intense but we assure that it will all be taught in a very fun, exciting and impactful way! Did we mention that the children will also get to extract honey from our very own bees and being a small jar home?

CAMPERS CAN ALSO LOOK FORWAD TO:

- Caring for our farms live stock daily - goats, sheep, chickens, ducks.
