Although the deadline for enrollment lottery for this age group has past, we encourage interested families to submit an application. You will be placed on our waiting list and we will contact you if a space becomes available in your preferred session. We sometimes have unexpected openings due to changes to people's summer schedules
We will be using a lottery-style enrollment system. A submitted application is not a guarantee for placement in summer camp. However, an application is the first required step for enrollment.
Due to the limited number of spaces available for camp this summer, a camper may only be able to attend several sessions during 2022, but please fill out the enrollment lottery with all your available dates and desired number of sessions.
Here is the timeline and details for the enrollment lottery:
February 7-18 - Lottery Applications will be accepted for ages 5-8. Submit an online application for camp. A separate application must be completed for each camper. If chosen by the lottery, all siblings in the same family that submitted an application will be added to the roster. Once submitted, an application cannot be edited. You can only submit one application per camper. No deposit is due with the application.
By February 22: Emails will be sent to all applicants with notification of enrollment status for campers ages 5-8. Campers chosen through the lottery will receive additional instructions for accepting/completing their enrollment. Those not selected through the lottery system will be put on the waitlist and notified if space becomes available.
By March 15: Campers ages 5-8 that are selected by the lottery for 1/2 day sessions must complete their registration by March 15. Unless another payment plan is arranged, payment in full must be submitted at time of registration.
Be sure to indicate all the available days that your child can attend camp on your application. We will try to enroll campers in their first-choice session. If that session is full, we will move on to your second choice, or third choice. The number of days of participation will be determined by the number of lottery applications.
Once camp sessions are full, any remaining applicants will be placed on the waitlist. We will continue to use a lottery-style process for those awaiting availability.
We encourage families to submit applications after enrollment deadline as special events may be offer to families on the waitlist. Also, spaces sometime become available due to changes in summer plans.

Age Group: 5-8

Our single 1/2 day sessions for campers ages 5-8 will operate from 9 am - 1 pm and will be offered on select summer dates.
Our work and play on the farm will provide a sampling on life on the farm and offer meaningful and memorable experiences. Learning stations located throughout the facility will offer many opportunities for campers to learn, grow and have lots of outdoor fun while on the farm! Children will help with animal chores, help harvest in the production garden and enjoy good old fashion fun on the farm. To offer an authenetic farm experience, activities will be aligned with the seasonal work being done on the farm at the time of your visit.
It is important for us to be inclusive. Although our scholarship is limited, we will make an effort to make camp possible for families that have been selected via lottery for camp enrollment. In addition to Taproot Scholarship, families can inquiry about payment options.
Our farm relies upon community contributions, in part, to help make our scholarship program possible. We are not a non-profit organization so we cannot provided tax deductible receipts for contributions, but please know your contribution will help make farm camp possible for children that may otherwise been unable due to financial constraints. Please contact us if you are interested in contributing to our Taproot Scholarship Fund.
Campers must bring all their own food for the day. Refrigeration space will be provided for perishable items in lunch boxes. More information will be provided with camper enrollment packet.
At this time, we anticipate that masks will be optional when outside, but manditory if the weather brings us into the inside classrooms. Group sizes will be limited. Campers will be encouraged to wash their hands often while on the farm. Handwashing stations are available throughout the farm.
Keeping campers and staff safe is a team effort. Please do not send your children to camp if they have a fever, have been sick, or have been around someone who has been sick or tested positive. Morning checks-ins at drop off will be a part of our safety measures. Additional information regarding our safety protocol and procedures will be provided with the welcome packet.

Ag and education go hand in hand at our farm. We produce chemical-free produce for our community and provide opportunities to learn about and become involved in life on the farm. Through hands-on activities, campers learn about food origin, sustainable agriculture and land stewardship.
At Farm Camp, we encourage a love for animals, domestic and wild. Campers learn about the animals living on the farm and help with animal- related chores.
Nature is our outdoor classroom. Throughout the farm we have learning stations that encourage campers to explore the outdoor world, learn about the animal and plant kingdoms, and develop new skills. The rhythm of farm camp allows lots of time for free play and fun-filled activities!
