WEEK 2 - FARM CAMP - FOR 6-12 YEAR OLDS

HEALTH, THE HUMAN HEART & BRAIN,(learn to use a blood pressure cuff and stethescope), HAND MADE BATH BOMBS & MASSAGE SALVE, HARVEST LAVENDER AND DISTILL OUR OWN OILS, ALL ABOUT ANIMALS AND MORE!!!

~ A fantastic camp for all children, especially those with busy schedules or struggle with being stressed or anxious ~

HEALTH, THE HUMAN HEART & THE BRAIN:

Participants will learn the parts of the heart and how the circulatory system works in a very fun way! We will learn about blood pressure and how to take a blood pressure reading as well as foods that are beneficial for our heart.

We will also teach the basics of the brain and how each area of the brain has a different responsibility. We will learn several essencial oils that cause blood flow to different parts of the brain to improve study and concentration as well as which ones relax the body.

All of this may sound like a lot to take in but we have a very unique approach to interactive learning that is so much fun that the kids will barely know they are being taught!

WELLNESS CRAFTS:

We are thrilled to teach our campers how to harvest and distill their very own lavender sessencial oils use them in creating their own bath booms and massage salve. The children will be taught the basics of a REFLEXOLOGY foot massage and hopefully put their skills to use on their loved ones at home!

We will briefly discuss with campers how choosing a few “calming tools“ that appeal to them can be used when they feel like they need to “regroup” or “change their state”. Toni robins often says that when we feel stressed or any sort of undesirable emotion feels over whelming that we may want to consider “ changing our states”, particularly our physical states. Change the way we move, get some exercise, take a bath, take a swim, do some deep breathing, etc. Physiological changes occur within our body’s that may assist us in relieving some of what ever it may be that is not our desired way of feeling. THIS WILL BE SPOKEN OF IN A SIMPLE NON-COMPLEX WAY GEARED FOR CHILDREN. NO DEEP DIALOGUE ABOUT CHILDRENS PERSONAL FEELINGS WILL BE DISCUSSED IT IS SIMPLY MEANT TO OFFER SOME IDEAS THAT THE KIDS MAY WANT TO TRY OUT AT HOME. Given the pace of our lives these days I feel that these activities are great for children as well as for the entire family!

ANIMALS AND VEGGIES:

We have some very special animals on our farm and we love sharing the roles that they can play in permaculture and farming as well as how being in the presence of animals releases happy chemicals in our brains boosting out feeling of well being, lowering our heart rates and causes us to be more empathetic to all beings.

We will harvest a few veggies, taste them and chat a bit about the differences between zero chemical, zero synthetics farming methods verses organic and conventional. We will do a few little taste tests to see if we can taste the difference!

CAMPERS CAN ALSO LOOK FORWAD TO:

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

- Harvesting various fruits and vegetables to enjoy at the farm daily ( providing all goes well with the weather and our crops this season).

- Soil and what lives in the soil - earth worms and microbes

- Dialy mindfulness practice, yoga on the farm and gratitude before meals.

- "Old school" games and physical activity.

- COMMUNITY - What it means to be part of a community and the importance of who each of us are within our community - connecting with ourselves, our families and others in a deep way.

- Arts, crafts & and more!

- Friday FAMILY DAY 2-3pm
