Farm Summer Camps
Mar 31, 2016 03:11PM
Wellspring organic farm and education center in West Bend has opened registration for its annual summer camps, which give kids opportunities for outdoor fun while connecting them to the source of their food. Each session includes activities based on gardening, farming, animals, nature and outdoor play, so campers can enjoy themselves on a real working farm.
This year’s schedule includes one-day mini-camps in June, July and August for kids 6 to 13 years old. Kids 8 through 13 are eligible to attend Wellspring’s overnight camp from June 26 through July 1. AgriCorps, the farm’s program for teens 14 to 17, will take place from July 24 through 30.
Wellspring has been teaching people to grow, prepare and eat healthy food since 1982. It boasts the longest-running community supported agriculture (CSA) program in Wisconsin and sells its produce to restaurants and at farmers’ markets.
