“Little Farmers” Summer Animal Husbandry Program (7-10 years)

July 8 @ 9:00 amJuly 12 @ 12:00 pm

Rose Bridge Farm Sanctuary offers a farm animal husbandry program that will be hands on for the kids to learn how to raise baby farm animals and plants. The kids will learn about a variety of different farm animals and how to take care of them every day. Children learn to act responsibly and empathetic towards the animals and nature. We encourage children to learn the joys of farm life and the importance of locally sourced, healthy food through hands-on experiences and educational activities. We will make a craft. They will also learn how to grow and pick flowers & herbs!

 

Age group: 7 to 10 years old (12 children total) (If you have a group of older children who want to do this, we can tweak the program for them and do a group with older kids)

Sign up daily. Monday – Friday, 9-12

Location: Rose Bridge Farm and Sanctuary. The camp will take place on a working farm and will have access to a barn, cottage, garden, and outdoor space for activities and recreation.

Costs: $50 a day

Counselors: The camp will be staffed by our farmer Gracie who will provide guidance and supervision.

 

Children will participate in a variety of activities, including:

Crafts: Children will make handcrafted items related to the farm, such as tie-dyed shirts using natural dyes from plants on the farm, decorate horse shoes, make flower and herb pots to take home, fresh flower bouquets etc.

Animal care: Children will learn about animal husbandry which is caring for farm animals and get to help feed and groom them.
