First week of full day camp… ever!

So this week we launched a test of having full day camp at the farm.  We made this decision based on feedback from parents last year, and decided to test it out for two weeks of camp this year.  So far, it’s been going GREAT!  We also lucked out with awesome weather so far this week, and it looks as if the rest of the week will be good as well.  The only concern with full day camp is that we have very limited indoor space at the farm, so if the weather is really bad for an extended period of time it could be challenging keeping everyone happy. But after just two days I can’t imagine how we fit everything in with just a half day in the past! 🙂

Our theme for this week of camp is “The Garden is a Magical Place”.  Yesterday we explored the magic of seeds by reading two books, doing a seed match game, and creating a seed identification chart as our craft.  

Today our theme was the Secrets of Soil.  We investigated different soils around the farm, explored our compost bins (lots of worms were found!) and did a soil/sand painting craft.  Tomorrow we will be exploring the Magic of Metamorphosis!

Here’s a picture of our campers for this week (missing our one camper who was the photographer for the day):
