We share the farm and forest with a great diversity of animals! During this exciting week of camp we turn our attention to the furry, feathered, and scaly creatures around us. From the smallest worms in the worm bin to the furriest coyotes in the forest, we’ll learn how each is adapted to their environment. We will care for the farm animals, collect eggs from the chickens, track animals in the forest, go birdwatching, catch critters in the creek, tell animal legends and create lots of animal-inspired art. This week is perfect for the animal lover in your life and your camper will come away with an increased knowledge of species local to the Pacific Northwest as well as plenty of personal experiences with our farm animals.
August 6 - 10
The forest is a bountiful resource that will be the focus of this fun-filled camp. We will build shelters, make delicious snacks from berries and other wild edibles, bring fire to life, share legends and myths about the Pacific Northwest, learn to navigate through the woods and observe the animals with whom we share this place. We will create art with natural pigments, and learn skills such as wool carding and rope-making. Through activities, scavenger hunts, games and stories campers will come away from this week with a deeper connection to the natural world.
August 13 - 16
Water is life! From the damp, shady forest to Kelly Creek, we will explore all things wet and wild this week. The creek is home to many species that we’ll explore while we also become research scientists and conduct tests to see if it’s healthy. We will build boats, look for frogs, make sure our animals and garden plants have fresh water, paint with watercolors, and cool off with some wet and wild games. Your camper may get a little wet this week but will also come away with a greater understanding of how our little creek connects with the larger bodies of water in our region and a respect for the importance of taking care of this resource.
