For those of you not familiar with our day camps, a description is provided on our programs page.
We will be running Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 9 am to 4 pm during our nine weeks of camp. On parade days, we welcome apprentices to come help for the entire day, while most non-apprentices should plan on meeting us at the parade site accompanied by a parent. On Wednesdays, we would like to be meeting parents at different workplace locations in the area (TBA) in the morning to explore careers. Parents could stay for the presentation or leave if they need to, and we would like a few parents that could volunteer to take kids back to the farm for the rest of the day. We will be holding camp the weeks of June 16, June 23, June 30, July 7, July 14, July 21, July 28, August 11, and August 18.
The suggested donation per week, per child, is $40 . We asking that children try to get sponsors if parents cannot afford the suggested donation. This can be done by writing letters to friends, family, and businesses. We will be happy to help structure the letters, have kids write them during the camp, and provide supplemental materials to enclose with the letters. Please run it by us before approaching a business so that we can make sure that the business has not already been asked or donated to us recently. Some kids have already gotten sponsors, which is wonderful!
We also could use some parents to help transport kids on parade days, on other field trips (TBA), and to volunteer in the program. The more volunteers we have, the more kids we can serve, and we will automatically give a slot to a kid that brings their own parent for the day!
