Our five-day farm camp provides children with a blend of hands-on farm, arts, and culinary experiences. Campers start the day by collecting eggs, taking part in some basic chores such as harvesting or making compost, as well as exploring the natural environment in and around the farm.
Campers will harvest the ingredients for their lunches and take part in a chef guided cooking experience that culminates in a shared home-grown lunch.
Afternoons are spent journaling, drawing, working with clay, and other artistic endeavours that interpret and express the farm experience.
This year’s camp directors and councillors are members of Foxglove Farm’s staff and local chefs. All are experienced in working with children and passionate about sharing the farm and its bounty.
