Crown Point’s Summer Farm & Science Camp

Lessons from the Land 2014
This is the 8th year for Crown Point’s enriching and engaging day camp for explorers ages 6-11* years old.

Through investigation and unlimited discovery explorers will learn the natural cycles of plants, animals and people on a farm. Crown Point’s land is a living classroom that awakens children’s sense of wonder through activities and games rooted in ecology, art, math, and language arts.

Hungry for more? We’ll investigate who’s eating whom in the Hausfeld Children’s Garden and explore the farm from field to forest, and barn to pond. Along the way, we’ll harvest and prepare food for daily snacks, play team-building games, and learn how to set-up and run a children’s farm market!

Join us as we explore Crown Point Ecology Center’s 115-acre farm, and follow our food from the field to the plate! Celebrate the life of a farmer as you work and play at Crown Point!

SummerCamp2All sessions are held from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday-Friday in Crown Point’s Century Barn.
Fee is $190 per child per session/ $180 each for siblings.
