Getting their elbows dirty and making more than mud pies, campers will explore the science behind soil. Studying regional soil, worms and insects, and composting materials, this is a camp for hands-on exploring up to your elbows!

Week 3 (June 6-10)


We All Scream for Ice Cream!
In honor of National Dairy Month in June, we will be celebrating by exploring all that the dairy industry has to offer! Campers will learn the dairy industry from the local to global scale - from animal care, to products made from dairy, to the science behind how each product is made from milk. 

Week 4 (June 13-17)

Animal Caretaking
Calling all future veterinarians and animal lovers! Discover everything there is to know about our beloved animals at the AgriPark. Study their unique characteristics and what makes them valued member of the farm. Campers will learn how to best care for all of the animals’ needs, from grooming and feeding to waste management and washing.  

Week 5 (June 20-24)

Machines & Technology
Tools and tinkering are not reserved just for the woodshop! Campers will explore old and new technology on the farm, featuring machines of old and the modern day that help farmers make the most of their time. Campers will explore machines used every season at the AgriPark, from a disc and rototiller to a Case 70A tractor, to build their own model tractor.  

Week 6 (June 27-July 1)

Cultivating Chefs
Chefs know where food comes from and what to do with it, and throughout the week, campers will cultivate a similar respect and knowledge. Chefs in the making can expect to learn about regional crops and how to plant, harvest, and prepare foods to eat right from the earth.
