Announcing: Treleven Farm and Forest Camp for young children and their families.
What: Five weeks of nature lessons, explorations, experiments, arts, food, chores and fun for whole families. We will use the Four Winds Curriculum (including a puppet show) to begin each day, and then branch out into personal explorations using the farm and forest facilities of Treleven Farm. The theme this year is Patterns: Insects, Leaves, Tracks, Animal Coloration, Frogs. We will also eat our way through 5 Harvest of the Month vegetables during snack time.
When: Thursday Mornings 9:00 – 12:00 from July 9 – August 6, 2015. Families are welcome to attend on a drop in basis. Children attending by themselves must be pre-registered and have their Medical Forms completed prior to the first session.
Where: Treleven Farm: 164 Mitchell Drive, Vergennes, VT 05491 (around the corner from Field Days)
Why: A chance for families to learn together and to have fun exploring nature in a supportive environment. An opportunity for children and parents to learn more about farming and forestry management.
Cost: the suggested donation is $ 15 per session per family or $ 60 for the five session series. Pay as you feel led.
How to register: Fill out the Registration Form and Release Form and return in hard copy or electronically. Medical Forms must also be submitted for any child attending on their own.
What to bring: A brown bag lunch (snack will be provided), sun block and bug dope, possibly a change of clothes for the muddy explorations. Families are welcome to bring bathing suits and towels if they wish to stay later to swim. We regret that we do not have a certified life-guard and cannot supervise other children in the pond.
Refund Policy: If you pay in advance for the summer and find you cannot attend all sessions, we will happily charge you only for the sessions you attend and refund the rest.
