Wild Sprouts: Farm and Forest Camp

Wilderness Awareness School has partnered together with Oxbow Farm, and we are serving up something very special this summer!

During this week of daily adventures your child will explore the edge where Farm and Forest meet. In addition to Wilderness Awareness School’s unique day camp experience learning about plants, mammals, tracking, birds and survival skills…we’re down on the farm!

Kids will make their own sun tea, fresh fruit popsicles, and farm burritos. They will dig roots and pick fruits, save, sow, and snack on seeds. On the final day, we will harvest produce for an end-of-week Happy Camper Farmers Market! Each day we enjoy storytelling under the Maple Tree, as well as songs, crafts, and play surrounding food, farm and forest life.

Our Wild Sprouts: Farm and Forest Camp is available for different age groups; 4-6 year olds and 7-12 year olds. Younger children have three weeks to choose from. Please note that one of these weeks is a full-day experience (9:00-3:00) a new offering for this age group in 2013!! This full day experience for the younger child is appropriate for those who are ready to not only be away from home, but also active and engaged for this length of time!

Some planned camp activities:

  • Wild Sprouts!At the forest’s edge we search for wild plants that can be used for food by humans and animals.
  • In the hoop house we will explore such mysteries as: Why does a seed sprout?
  • In the fields we will consider: How is a Chickadee like a Chicken?
  • In the Living Playground we will explore the Vine Tunnel and the Runner Bean Teepee to experience what the world looks like from a caterpillar’s point of view.
  • In the garden we will discover the answer to the perplexing question: What do you feed your pet earthworms anyway?
  • And much more!

Oxbow FarmWe invite your child to come and experience the joy of having their hands in good clean dirt while learning how we can care for our environment and ourselves in a sustainable way.

Camp is held at Oxbow Farm in the Snoqualmie Valley (about 15 minutes from Redmond). It is on a 120-acre property, with 20 acres of certified organic vegetables, berries and tree fruit in cultivation for the fresh market.
