Adventure Summer Camp at Chukkar Farm
at Chukkar Farm
ART SPORTS HIKING FISHING ARCHERY AND ADVENTURE
Our objective is to create a variety of fun and exciting activities where the day passes without measure and your child wait to come back and learn about life outside in the real world.
Fishing was the most popular activity we do 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. Many of the campers had never been fishing or only a few times.Most weeks averaged thirty to forty fish, but one week with a large group we caught over 100 fish.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. 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
Panning for gold, 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
