Summer Farm Camps

 

       2016 Summer Farm Camps     


Summer camps at Wellspring are focused on outdoor fun and connecting kids to where food comes from. Each session includes activities based on gardening, farming, animals, nature and outdoor play! Kids will have great time on a real working farm. This year, we're offering 1-day mini-camps for kids between the ages of 6-13.  We have an overnight camp for kids, ages 8-13. (AgriCorps is our program for teens, ages 14-17.  More information about AgriCorps is available by clicking here.)

Wednesday, August 10thA-Buzz for Native Bees-- Did you know honeybees are not native to North America? Who pollinated all the flowers in the U.S. before European settlers brought the honeybees here? Native bees are often overlooked, but they can be blue, green, brown or other colors and they usually build and live in nests rather than hives. Come see what the buzz is about native bees and actually build nests for them. We may even get to look at some beneath a microscope. COST: $60/day
