More About Sweet Pea Summer

Spend July on the farm at Sweet Pea Summer! This month-long series of programs is designed for kids grades K - 3

Each week-long camp session will dive into a different farm topic to excite our young learners about all that the farm and our natural world have to offer! Whether your child is an animal lover, budding artist, young foodie, or just wants to dig their hands in the dirt, we've got something for all learners!

The Art of the Outdoors
Week 1: July 1st - July 4th, 9am - 12pm
People have been making art for much longer than they've been making crayons! Students will investigate the amazing versatility of plants and other natural matter as art materials through hands-on projects, as well as seeing ways famous artists have done the same! Activities will include paper making, sculpting, printmaking, and more!

Creatures and Critters
Week 2: July 8th - July 11th, 9am - 12pm
Our chickens aren't the only animals we rely on as farmers! Come learn about the beautiful web of life on our farm! Students will meet creatures large and small to investigate the role they play on our farm and in the ecosystem we live in! Creatures being covered include chickens, bees, compost critters, birds, and more!

Farm Fresh Food
Week 3: July 15th - July 18th, 9 am - 12pm
Where do all of the ingredients in our fridge come from? How does milk turn into butter? This week is all about exploring where food comes from and how it gets made. Students will cook and taste test recipes using seasonal foods, and investigate the science behind making things like ice cream, butter, bread, and more!

Junior Naturalists
Week 4: July 22nd - July 25th, 9am - 12pm
The natural world is full of beauty and mystery that people have been trying to document and understand for as long as we've been around. This week students will take on the role of naturalists and use all five sense to study the plants and animals around them. Each student will create a field journal, complete life drawings, identify specimen, and earn badges
