Week 2
We're walking through the woods…

Who lives in the woods? Perhaps it's a squirrel, a deer, a rabbit, or maybe even a fairy. Embark on exciting expeditions through the forest as we search for signs of woodland creatures. From tracks to nests, and even the bustling homes of buzzing insects, children will learn to identify the secret hideaways and habitats of the forest's furry, feathered, and multi legged inhabitants. Let imaginations run wild amidst the towering trees and dappled sunlight of the forest playground! Children will engage in unstructured play, building forts, and connecting with nature in its purest form.

We Will:

  • Hike in the woods 

  • Use trail cameras 

  • Identify trees and plants 

  • Build fairy houses and bug hotels

Week 3
Down on the Farm

Put on your muck boots! From feeding our pigs Strawberry, Hamilton, Daisy, and Doll to collecting eggs from our chickens and ducks, children will take an active role in caring for our farm's furry and feathered residents. Whether we are planting, watering, or harvesting, they'll learn the value of responsibility and the importance of teamwork in a farming environment. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to sow the seeds of curiosity and cultivate a love for nature on the farm.


We Will:

  • Explore our gardens

  • Collect eggs

  • Harvest crops

  • Create recipes

  • Water and weed the crops

  • Feed our barn animals
