Farm Camp at the Dickson-Murst Farm

June 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - June 28, 2019 @ 3:00 pm


This week-long day camp for ages 7-10 will run from June 24th through June 28th, 9am to 3pm at The Conservation Foundation’s Dickson-Murst Farm in Montgomery.

Experienced educators will introduce your child to both the historic and modern methods and aspects of farming and farm family life with the backdrop of the historic Dickson-Murst farmstead.  Educators from The Conservation Foundation, Kendall County Outdoor Education Cooperative, and Kendall County Ag in the Classroom will be joined by volunteers from our Dickson-Murst Farm Partners to guide campers through a wide variety of activities, crafts, demonstrations, hands-on learning opportunities and ways to get dirt on their boots! The rural lifestyle is a part of our region’s cultural heritage, but we have become further and further
removed from that heritage as the area has developed and modernized.

Help your child get in touch with the past and where their food comes from!

Cost for this camp is $125/camper.
