Summer Ag Camp Ideas

Monday, January 16, 2017

*Sent to all contacts.

The Whiteside County Farm Bureau has been recognized for their outstanding event this past summer, Ag(Farm) Camp for Kids.  

View their website at:
   Forms, agendas, etc. are all there to replicate and begin in your own county this summer.  Congratulations to the staff and volunteers at the Whiteside County Farm Bureau for the idea and all the effort!

Learning about Agriculture is fun!  Farm Camp offers a unique hands-on learning experience teaching kids about agriculture and farm life. Camps were hosted by local libraries and an arts academy. Camps included hands-on activities, crafts, games, reading opportunities and field trips. Field trips included farms/ag-related businesses; beef, dairy, pig, sheep, goat, horse, vegetable, alpaca, grain, an apiary and an implement dealership.

Monday-Thursday, campers visited a different farm. Campers returned to the library/arts academy and participated in activities that corresponded with that day's field trip. A book barn was built and stocked with ag-related books that campers could read during camp or check out and take home to read.

135 students participated the first year.   97% of parents rated the camps at 4 or higher on a 5-point scale; 96% of parents indicated their child would attend another camp.
