Plum Forest Farm Summer Camp

Family Farm Adventure Camps —

SESSION 1: June 24-26, 2019 • 9am-1pm, Ages 3-6, $140

SESSION 2: July 29-August 1, 2019 • 9am-2pm, Ages 6-11, $220

For both sessions, children will spend the whole day outdoors.

Session 1: Our camp for young children is based in the curriculum of the former Heartstone School, and is Waldorf Inspired-Nature Infused. After a morning movement circle with song, children feed the animals and head out to harvest summer crops, then make a snack together. After snack there is free imaginative play in the enchanted Plum Forest where fairies and gnomes abound and gnarled trees are climbable. Everyone has a chance to work in the children’s garden too–digging, watering, and picking flowers. The day finishes with a story and games.

Session 2: This camp for older children starts with morning chores at Plum Forest Farm caring for the animals. Then children harvest, prepare and eat a farm grown snack and write up the recipe to take home! We then pack up our lunches and hike to a different local natural area each day.  Our hikes will lead us to Island Center Forest and Land Trust properties at Matsuda Farm, Judd Creek, and Singer Farm where we will explore the wild beauty, life and abundance of summer on Vashon Island.  Expect games, singing and adventurous wandering.  Parents will pick up their children at these different sites, all within one mile of the farm, at the end of the day.

Instructors are a family team!  Joanne Jewell-Mother, Rose Jewell-Peterson (13) and Mira Jewell-Peterson (21) -Daughters
