The farm provides campers with opportunities for developing respect for our natural environment and for learning about farm life and what it teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. Camp activities will vary with the age and interest of the camper.
How does gardening foster responsibility in young campers? It encourages campers to use their hands to prepare the soil, apply fertilizer, sow seeds, remove competing weeds, add water and harvest the crop. These practices are necessary for a plant to grow to its full potential and produce food.
The strategy of using a garden as a teaching tool benefits both the camper and the counsellor. Children learn many of the basic life skills to help them prepare for challenges later in life such as responsibility, self-confidence, communication and the skills of observation.
When campers accept these responsibilities, we help them to become caring individuals. Campers learn basic skills when they observe how weather affects plants; how seeds sprout; how plants grow; how gardeners cope with plant problems; how soil, water and sunshine interact how butterflies and other insects play a big role.
We have 48 acres to explore. From our wet lands to our wooded trails, campers will have the opportunity to discover all areas for science exploration. The purpose of this club is to foster good habits and relationships between children and their natural environment.
