CAMP LEADERSHIP PROGRAM for Youth ages 13-15
The Camp Leadership Program (CLP) combines service, leadership development, skill building, adventure and fun! The program is hands-on with 80 acres on a certified organic farm and woods, creeks, fields and gardens to explore. Archery challenges all to be their best whether a novice or experienced. Time with animals is a part of every day. CLP's learn about where food comes from as they care for a big garden and learn from farmers. Culinary arts with Chef Anwar Rasheed will include healthy snack making and a weekly cooking class. There is a weekly field trip for off-farm adventures.
Camp Leadership Camp Themes 2023
Week One: Habitat Adventures (June 19th - 23rd)
The farm is teeming with life in the woods, creeks, meadows and fields. Be a part of Citizen Science as we do pollinator counts, collect data about indicator species in the creeks and lend a hand with habitat restoration projects. Fun, learning and service happen here!
Week Two: Food is Amazing (June 26th- 30th)
We cook every week at camp and have healthy tasty snacks twice a day, but where does our food come from? We’ll find beautiful food growing in the orchard, fields, greenhouses and the exciting new no-dig farming beds. We will meet Snipes’ farmers and a guest chef to learn first-hand the journey of food from seed-to-fork.
Week Three: Birds of a Feather (July 3rd-7th)
Birds live all around us, but these remarkable creatures are often hidden or zooming past us. Our new meadow bird observation station will help us to watch birds in action. Volunteers from Bucks County Audubon will teach us the basics of bird watching. We’ll learn about wild and tame birds as we explore anatomy, plumage, flight, adaptations, migration and more!
Week Four: Movin’ and Groovin’ (July 10th- 14th)
Let’s get moving through dance, yoga, music-making and talent shows every day with campers and staff! Let’s see how animals, plants and water have their own unique ways of moving. We’ll groove to different kinds of music from guest musicians and music that we make ourselves.
Week Five: Fabulous Friends (July 17th- 21st)
The heart of Farm Camp is friendship as old friends meet up again and new friends are made. There is gift giving from one camp group to another with surprises in store on National Camp Kindness Day. Groups will team up for projects and play across ages as we make one fabulous community together.
Week Six: The Underground World (July 24th - 28th)
Critters large and small are beneath our feet in soil teeming with life! We’ll learn about rocks and minerals and how nature makes soil. We’ll build our own at the compost pile and find worms galore and other cool critters.
Week Seven: Artful Antics (July 30th- Aug, 4th)
Our summer art program will include guest artists and fun projects made with natural materials . We will make one project all together and discover the artist in each of us!
Week Eight: Farm Olympics (Aug. 7th- 11th)
Our camp season finishes with celebration of gratitude, team building, and play. Sportsmanship and cooperative games are emphasized in a last week we’ll be sure to remember! We will play games from all over the world and conclude with our very own olympics ceremony- farm style!
