Camps

Dirty fingers create engaged minds and at Alegre Farm Camps, little farmers learn how to care for farm animals, prepare food fresh from the garden and give a horse a bath!

Join us for fun-filled learning where kids experience life on a real working farm! Campers gain self-confidence, learn to work as a team, and learn to care for animals and the environment all while having an unforgettable, good time. Each camp session has a different theme, but all have common program goals: Challenging ourselves, learning to work in a community, experiencing simple living and connecting with nature.

Summer Camp

June 4-6 , June 18-20 , July 9-11 and July 23-25

Alegre Farm Summer Camp is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn about life on the farm. Campers will learn about composting, gardening and animal care through hands-on activities in our gardens and with our animals. During this 3 day, morning camp, we will feed and care for all our animals each day. Campers will help collect fresh eggs and learn how to take care of chickens, roosters, and baby chicks. We will groom, ride, and even bathe our horses. We will learn about goat care through feeding, grooming, and milking our nanny goats. Campers will tend to and harvest items from our garden. We will spend time cooking and eating using our fresh herbs, vegetables, and honey from our beehives! Campers will learn all about animal respect and safety and will see what living on a farm is really like. We will also take nature walks, create some animal arts and crafts, perform science experiments, and many more fun activities. In between all these awesome activities, the campers will work as a team, enjoy being outside and make new friends while learning about the farm.

Campers will:

Take a Hay Ride
Learn About Gardening
Make Fun Farm Crafts
Milk a Goat
Groom a Pony
Feed and Pet the Animals
