For our older campers who may understand a little more about a working farm, we guide our days around the question: What is a sustainable food system? From there, our week’s activities are built around understanding what makes our farm sustainable and how we can help to make a difference both on the farm and at home. Campers will have a chance to take on sustainability challenges at the farm, learn from some of our local experts, and mix in plenty of farm exploration, games, cooking competitions, farm Olympics, and time with our barnyard animals.
Appleton Late Night
This year, 3 out of 7 weeks of camp will include an optional evening at the farm for Foragers and Apprentices. This special after-hours add-on gives campers an exclusive opportunity to experience the farm outside of the normal camp day. We’ll plan and cook a dinner together with our garden harvest, welcome in the cows, learn how our farmers do their milking chores and spend some extra time with our friends, telling stories, and playing games.
Appleton Late Nights will take place on Thursday of sessions 2 and 4 for Foragers, and session 6 for Apprentices. Campers will be picked up at 7PM on Thursday night. There is no Late Night option offered for weeks 1, 3, 5, and 7. These weeks will follow a regular 9AM-3PM schedule. For pricing information, please see 2018 Weekly Tuition.
