Our objective is to create a variety of fun and exciting activities where the day passes without measure and your child can not wait to come back and learn about life outside in the real world.
Fishing was the most popular activity we did all summer. The kids begged for more time at the lake. I planned for one to two mornings of fishing, but every week we fished three mornings. We dug up some of our worms and by the last day everyone could hook their own worms and most could take the fish off the hook. Many of the campers had never been fishing or only a few times. Boy, did we catch a lot of fish. Most weeks averaged thirty to forty fish, but one week with a large group we caught over seventy. We caught brim, bass, crappie, catfish and a few turtles.
Archery gives campers a chance to learn and test their skills with a bow
and arrow. Beginners quickly pick up and enjoy hitting the targets and veteran archers can move the targets to challenge themselves.
Hiking is the main mode of transportation around the farm. We average two to three miles a day with the longest hike to the back property to the old haunted house. Last summer with all the rain we had many puddles so splash though as we ventured through the hardwood forest or the long pasture trails. We usually stopped by the little river creek to cool off which the campers always enjoyed splashing around and making mud pies.
We have seen a variety of native species of animals around the farm. Frogs, turtles, turkeys, deer, all types of birds, baby opossums, butterflies, raccoon... tracks, and more
Horseback Riding: Under the direction of Mrs. Sue our riding and polo instructor, all campers will spend the one working with and riding horses.
Sports: Archery, Soccer - COOL Kick ball - Capture the flag - Tennis Baseball - Ultimate Frisbee, Water Wars and more
Watercolor - Oil Pastel - Color Pencil - Drawing - Acrylic Paint and more
Each week has a medium focus and all camps artists will have access to colored pencils, oil pastels, pencils, charcoal, and other basic art supplies.
Art projects are based on grade level and general ability of the group. Techniques and elements in art will be covered based on project. The subject matter of the art will be direct observations of the farm.
