Event Details


Farm, Nature & Horseback Riding Day Camp

 

 

Do you have fond memories of your childhood? Relaxed days spent in (mostly) unstructured outdoor play; the freedom to discover things on your own; taking your time to explore the world around you?

Our children are so often overscheduled and surrounded by stress in today's busy,hectic world. Prairie Winds Nature Farm offers an alternative:a safe haven, a relaxed atmosphere and a space to let them learn naturally. Here, they can: run around in the woods, ride a pony, take prairie hikes, lie on their backs and watch the clouds, and just be kids. A variety of activities are available: you and your child decide or let us guide them.

For an extra $5/hour, children can be dropped off earlier and/or stay later. 

A $10 discount is available for siblings -- each child from the same family that registers for camp is eligible for $10 off their camp session. This does NOT include single day registrations. Just enter "SIBLING" when prompted for the promotional code during the registration process. If you'd like to donate your discount back to the farm, then simply omit entering the promotional code. Scholarships are also available if needed.  All donations to the farm go to our scholarship fund and are tax deductible. We are a 501(c) 3 not for profit educational organization.  Go to http://bit.ly/farmcampscholarship to choose additional promotional codes (discounts)  if you truly need it. Promotional codes assume attendance all 5 days.  If you need financial assistance and your child(ren) can only attend certain days please email us at pwindsfarm@gmail.com and we will figure it out!  Please consider volunteering to transport additional children along with your own.  And let us know if you are in need of transportation! Email us at pwindsfarm@gmail.com with transportation offers or needs.

Background check available via: Girl Scouts of America, Good Shepherd Montessori School and St. Joseph County 4-H.

 

Early Bird Special!!!

 

 

Sign up by June 8th, receive a dozen farm fresh eggs.

Refer a new camper to us, receive a dozen farm fresh eggs. It's our way of saying thank you for helping us spread the word and fill our camp sessions. Please ask for your eggs at check-in :)

"Riding horses was a blast! We got a lesson and then a real trail ride almost every morning. When we weren't riding or grooming the ponies we got to explore the whole farm with a buddy- making sure to check in with an adult every hour or so.  When it rained we got to play in the hayloft.  We worked in the garden, picked blackberries, fed and led goats, held chickens & mice, and raced each other to the rope swing. And when it was really hot we got to swim in the pond if it was OK with our parents. A bunch of kids spent almost the whole day building a house out of sticks! Others worked on their PhD (post hole digging) degrees ;).

Before camp: complete the online permission/liability/emergency form at:  http://bit.ly/2019FarmCamp

What to bring: sack lunch, water bottle in a non-disposable container with your name on it; sunscreen & insect repellant applied by camper or parent; hat; shoes that will stay on- no Krocs or flip-flops- sandals OK if its very hot but tennis shoes preferred; boots & long pants for riding; swim suit & towel if its hot.

Carpooling is encouraged, if you don't have a carpool email me at pwindsfarm@gmail.com and I'll share your email addresses with others who request.

Prairie Winds Nature Farm

Hi, we are Charlotte and Robert Wolfe. We have been managing 85 acres of former row crop land since 1992. 20 acres is in fenced pastures for rotational grazing, and 65 is in native prairie, wetland, and woods for wildlife and pollinator habitat.

 

We graze horses & livestock including heritage breeds, and sell small amounts of eggs, honey, vegetables, fruit, and meat directly to consumers. We host visitor groups and offer 4-5 weeks of day camp every summer for kids. We're interested in permaculture and enjoy having interns help out with all of our projects.

 

Our farm is located in Lakeville, Indiana 7 miles south of South Bend. We are a working educational farm hosting visitors since 2003; with 501(c) 3 status under the IRS since April 2016.  We offer visitor experiences and farm products in a relaxed, family environment: a chance to reconnect with nature and the sources of our food. All donations above the cost of camp are tax deductible and will be applied toward our scholarship fund so that children who cannot afford camp can attend. Please consider sponsoring a low income child and/or offering transportation. If you'd like financial or transportation assistance with your child's attendance at camp please email us at pwindsfarm@gmail.com.
