George Jones Farm Discovery Camp 2015

This is a fantastic summer day camp opportunity for children ages 6-14 who are interested in learning about ecology, farming & permaculture.  The George Jones Memorial Farm and Nature Preserve is a dynamic space filled with many opportunities for fun and learning.  The 70-acre space is a working organic farm with greenhouses, natural buildings, sustainable energy projects, livestock, and more.  The nature preserve is filled with wetlands, ponds, forests, and fields to explore and is populated with many different types of critters to observe.  

Each week will be filled with skill-building activities that explore science, art, and nature such as hiking, games, scavenger hunts, music, crafts, swimming, farming, horseback riding and more.  Students will learn about sustainable living through permaculture, nature education, organic agriculure, natural building, and green energy from certified permaculture teachers, professional educators and college student interns.
