We are now in the full swing of summer camps at Live Earth Farm!  As our third session comes to a close, we are preparing for our fourth and final week of camp. nl 2 This will be our second session of Art on the Farm Camp, following our first ever summer presenting Young Farmers and Sprouts camps.

We have now been running Art on the Farm Camp for five consecutive summers!  Art on the Farm Camp consists of many found art projects on the farm, creating masks, tie dye, pickle making and a couple of cooking projects through out the week.

nl 1Our Young Farmers Camp is centered around field projects-harvesting, seeding, sowing and weeding-along with a heavy culinary component and a few art and craft projects.

Sprouts Camp is designed for a younger group of kids, ages 3-6, and their parents.  Instead of running from 9-3 and having a sleepover on Thursday night, we ran a three hour camp each day from 9-12 which included yoga each morning, art projects, baking, canning, harvesting in the garden and a costume party-picnic each day.

With the last week of camp fast approaching, we would like to thank our wonderful leaders-in-training, parents and campers who helped make all of our sessions great!  We hope to have such a wonderful group of kids next year to experience the wonders of our camps! nl 4
