Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a farmer?
Junior Farmer Camp, is designed to help kids discover for themselves by stepping into a farmer’s shoes for a week.
Our Junior Farmer Camp 2020 will follow the CDC and state government guidelines to ensure the safety of our campers and counselors. The group sizes for each session will continue to be small, consisting of 10-15 campers and 2-3 counselors and will be split into small groups following CDC guidelines for social distancing.
All campers and counselors will be required to wear a mask throughout the day and hand washing or sanitizer stations will be available around the site. Camper and parents will receive prior notice of all other safety precautions and processes implemented at the Farm & Museum. Our response to Covid-19 will continue to be updated as more information and state government guidelines becomes available.
The majority of our camp activities will be held outside where campers can maintain social distance. This year we will offer outdoor animal chores with the sheep, goats, chickens, and heifers, tractor-drawn wagon rides, games, gardening, crafts, and cooking. We will take advantage of the adjacent National Historical Park for hiking and learn about Vermont’s natural history. We can’t wait to see you at Junior Farmer Camp!
