Farm Camp at Rancho Alegre Farm

Join us for fun-filled learning where kids experience life on a real working farm! Campers gain self-confidence, learn to work as a team, and learn to care for animals and the environment all while having an unforgettable, good time. Each camp session has a different theme, but all have common program goals: Challenging ourselves, learning to work in a community, experiencing simple living and connecting with nature.

Summer Camps 2017


for July 10 – 12

“Garden Adventures at Rancho Alegre”

Campers will learn all about our gardens and how we care for our own dirt at Rancho Alegre!  Campers will learn how we maintain our gardens naturally, free from pesticides and fertilizers and how they can garden at home.  We will cook using items from our garden, take nature walks, create some arts and crafts, perform science experiments, and many more fun activities.  

During this 3 day camp, we will participate in many hands-on lessons involving our most important animals at the farm – worms and bees!   Campers will see how caring for worms and bees contributes to a healthy, natural garden.  Campers will create their own worm farms to take home, plant their very own seeds to care for, learn about parts of a plant and seed, and even try some of the honey from our honey bees!  We will also learn from our Bee Keeper and Gwinnett County Department of Water.

In addition, each day campers will help take care of our garden and our animals at Rancho Alegre to see what living on a farm is really like!  

In between all these awesome activities, the campers will work as a team, enjoy being outside and make new friends while learning about the farm.

Students will learn from several special guests during this week of camp including:

Our resident bee keeper, Jay Parsons!  Jay is not only our certified Master Bee Keeper but owns Dances with Bees with his wife Patti in Norcross, GA. A small chemical-free beekeeping operation with apiaries in Gwinnett and Habersham counties specializing in gourmet and varietal honey products, pure beeswax candles and natural bath and body products. Dances With Bees apiaries are Certified Naturally Grown!  

A representative from  Gwinnett County Department of Water will be a guest teacher.  Campers will learn about the water cycle, how to keep our streams clean,  and the importance of conserving water.

Campers will also participate in Garden Yoga!  Danielle Egli is a certified yoga teacher and mindfulness instructor.  She will come this week to teach the campers how to stretch their bodies and relax their minds after a fun filled morning at the farm!  Danielle specializes in animal and plant yoga poses for the youngest to oldest yoga student.
