Event description

Description

This week-long day camp will introduce your child to both the historic and modern methods and aspects of farming and farm life with the backdrop of the Dickson-Murst farmstead. Our one-week session will run June 25th to 29th from 9am to 3pm daily and include a wide variety of activities, crafts, demonstrations, hands-on learning opportunities and ways to get dirt on your boots!

Activities Include:

  • Butter & Candle Making
  • Learning Farm Chores Past & Present
  • Games
  • Screen-Free Time Outdoors
  • County Fair Day, Including Ice Cream Making

The rural lifestyle is a part of our region's cultural heritage, but we have become further and further removed from that heritage as the area has developed and modernized. Help your child or a child in your care get in touch with the past and where their food comes from through this week-long camp experience!

This camp is for children ages 7 to 10.

Special thanks to the volunteer Dickson-Murst Farm Partners and experts from the Kendall County Outdoor Education Center for helping to staff this camp, along with Environmental Educators from The Conservation Foundation.
