Summertime means camp for kids, and here at Terhune Orchards we offer two popular day camps for children ages 7 to 12 where children can experience life on the farm.
Future Farmers Gardening Camp: During the one-week sessions, children engage in hands-on activities that provide an understanding of how a farm works and its environmental context, plus plenty of hands-on farming and old-fashioned games. The activities blend learning, doing, and, of course, fun! Campers keep busy in our Children’s Garden planting, tending, watering, and harvesting — and then comes the best part, eating!
Future Farmers Gardening camp sessions are scheduled for Monday to Friday, July 6 to 10, July 27 to 31, and August 3 to 7.
Summer Camp on the Farm: Children learn how the farmer and nature work together to grow healthy crops. During the week campers will get a closer look at our resident insects, birds, and wild and domestic animals, and they will harvest crops in season. The children will learn by exploring through crafts, activities, and games.
Summer Camp on the Farm sessions are scheduled for Monday to Friday, July 13 to 17, and July 20 to 24.
The camp sessions are from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each weekday. For additional details or to register, call the farm store at 609-924-2310 or visit terhuneorchards.com.
