Farm Week Fun: Exploring the Wonders of Nature at Our Summer Camp!

June 24, 20232 min read

Welcome to another exciting update from our summer camp! It's Farm Week, and we've been having a blast diving into the world of agriculture and discovering where our food comes from. From garden adventures to dissections and even the arrival of baby chicks, there's never a dull moment here!

FPC Pre K

Garden Discoveries: One of the highlights of Farm Week has been spending quality time in the garden with our knowledgeable guide, Ms. Jan. Our campers have been eager to learn about the origins of the food we eat every day. They were thrilled to pick and taste some fresh produce straight from the garden, experiencing the joy of harvesting their own food. The sense of connection to nature and the understanding of the farm-to-table process have been invaluable lessons.

Sensory Delights for Prek: Our Prek group has been indulging in sensory exploration with special garden sensory boxes. These boxes are filled with a variety of materials and treasures, allowing the little ones to engage their senses and develop their curiosity about the natural world. They've been getting their hands dirty, feeling the textures, and discovering the wonders hidden within the boxes. It's a delightful way to stimulate their senses and spark their imagination.

Epic Games and Water Balloon Devotions: We firmly believe that a day at camp should be filled with both fun and learning. That's why we made sure to incorporate exciting activities into Farm Week. An epic game of hide and seek in the great outdoors brought laughter and joy to our campers as they explored the natural surroundings. And of course, what better way to beat the summer heat than with water balloon devotions? Our campers had a splashing good time while also learning about the properties of water and the importance of staying hydrated.

Dissecting Eggs and Baby Chicks: Yesterday, we embarked on an egg-citing adventure as we dissected eggs. The campers were fascinated by the intricate structures inside the eggs and the opportunity to observe and learn about the life cycle of a bird. The experience was hands-on, educational, and filled with awe and wonder.

But the excitement doesn't end there! We are thrilled to announce that our summer camp is now home to a batch of baby chicks eagerly pecking their way out of their eggs. It's a special moment for our campers to witness new life coming into the world, fostering their appreciation for the miracles of nature.

Eggs

As Farm Week unfolds, we continue to cram a lot of fun and learning into each day at our summer camp. From garden adventures and sensory exploration to thrilling games and fascinating discoveries, our campers are truly immersed in the wonders of nature. Stay tuned for more updates and magical moments as we nurture their curiosity, foster a love for the outdoors, and provide an unforgettable summer camp experience.

We like to sleep in some in the summer, can we drop off late?

Of course. Our morning meeting starts at 8:30, and then doors are locked for safety. All staff attends morning meeting, so you will need to call in order to be let in.

Q:

Why can't my preschooler go on the field trips?

We don't have a safe way to transport children who still need to be in car seats, even just booster seats. We will be having many guest speakers and fun activities at camp for our younger campers.
