Dig in and Get Dirty with Organic Gardening Wk 2: June 21st – 25th
Campers will have fun showing off their Green Thumbs this week of camp by growing tickle me plants, scrap plants and digging for worms along with; eating flowers, organic fruits and vegetables for snack. They will be learning the importance of going green, composting and growing organically. Children will be raking, fertilizing, watering and taking a Field Trip to Rodale Farms, in Kutztown. Whether your child is an accomplished gardener or a novice, your child will love the chance to partner with Mother Nature and make some magic. We won’t be looking for your child to achieve horticultural perfection, just encourage them to dig in, get dirty and have fun growing something beautiful to look at and/or good to eat! You’re invited to come see how our garden grew at the T.G.I.F. end of the week event!
A Caving We Will Go Wk 3: June 28th – July 2nd
Get ready to explore how to grow your own crystals, balance a bat on your finger and caving at home. Take a step back in time and experience what it was like to eat, dress and live like a cave wo/man. Come with us on our Field Trip to Crystal Cave, in Kutztown, and find out what a real cave is like. This week of camp you will have fun building a bat house, a sinkhole and making your own fossils. We will have fun making cave drawings, a caveman obstacle course, a flute out of Mammoth Bones (paper towel roll) and we will end the week on Friday with a Mammoth Bone Hunt. Travel back in time with our Caving We Will Go week of camp!
