Monday Village Day! Monday all day, families can engage in cob building, Village tours and more. Farm Kids programme includes this day. For non-farm kids, caregivers must be on-site.
Parents, on the first day please meet in the Yurt at 8:45am and plan to be at the Ecovillage until 9:15am to ensure a smooth start.
Check out this years incredible fusion of West African Dance (Moondance Studio – Lynn Weaver), Marimba classes, and Eco-Activities (O.U.R. ECOVILLAGE – variety of Discovery Guides). With an option for 4 days of mornings only….or a ‘Farm Kids” option for the holiday Monday and afternoons all week (eco-activities that you can even jump in on with your child – but be prepared to get down and dirty!)
The homesteading kids afternoons focus on learning about well-being and sustaining OURselves. We have children’s Reiki, plant medicine learning, and so much more. This is a five day camp with a wide variety of onsite activities to build community and ‘permaculturalize’ OUR lives.
“Campers” also engage in Eco Village Hands-On Learning Activities, taking full advantage of this wonderful farm & community-oriented location.
Who are the instructors?
Different folks on the village are joining in with various expertise to create the curriculum for the farm. Included are some of our continuing interns in the garden, O.U.R. Kitchen Magicians, Livestock managers etc. It’s a beautifully dynamic team ready for the incredible journey of children’s camp!
