Agriculture
(entering grade 3 – entering grade 8 in Fall 2019)
Is your student interested in all things outdoors? Then they’ll have a BLAST at our summer Agriculture camp. Students will work with the farm animals, help harvest produce on Penn Farm, and more! Students will be outdoors (unless it is raining) for the majority of their time at camp so students should come prepped with the following: Water Bottle, Outside closed toed shoes, Clothes they don’t mind getting dirty, Hats, Sunglasses, Sunscreen, and snacks if desired. It is also recommended that students DO NOT bring electronics (head phones, cell phones, portable gaming). These can distract from the experience (and we have so much fun planned!), and when working on the farm and with animals, can pose a danger. Phones are requested to stay home to prevent damage or loss.
