Enjoy a day off of school with learning at Rancho Alegre Farm!
Your children will be immersed in hands-on learning involving our most important animal on the farm – the earthworm! We will think like scientists as we discover this awesome creature and how its life creates the perfect soil for seeds and plants. We will spend time in our large compost bin where students study earthworms and the conditions where they live and thrive.
Next campers will spend time in our garden and greenhouse finding out how gardening is not just a summer activity. We will learn how seeds can be started indoors at this time of year and how children can help with the garden. Children will also take their very own worm farm and seedling to grow at home!
Our campers will also learn cool facts about pollinators from the resident honey bees at Rancho Alegre Farm from our beekeeper and how important they are to a garden. Your children can even sample some of their delicious honey. Our campers will leave Rancho Alegre Farm with a working knowledge of where their food comes from and how to grow their own food at home.
After camp Parents and Students may feel free to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy eating under one of our pavilions. They may also take a pony ride for an additional $5 fee and visit our animals.
Other Important Details: Children should come dressed comfortably with appropriate shoes for being outside. Campers should bring a water bottle and a snack labeled with their name. Students (and parents) should be ready to get dirty and learn more about nature!
