Kids and Parents
Courses coming soon!
Kids classes are geared for elementary and middle school aged children.
Teens are often welcome to join the adult classes. Preschool age children may be able to participate in some of the kids classes with a parent present. Children accompanying parents in adult classes will depend on the course and instructor. We will do our best to be clear on age requirements and policies with each class. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Family Farm Outing/Potluck:
The second Sunday of every month we host a free community social from 5-8 pm. Children and adults are welcome to explore and play. Both outdoor and indoor activities are available. You are welcome to bring an instrument, outdoor game, board game to share if you'd like. The earlier part of the afternoon will include a 30 minute property/home tour for those interested and time for kids to play outside. From 6-8 pm is the community potluck and social. You are welcome to attend part or all of the farm day outing. This is a great way to get to know The FOLC Farm and meet folks.
Wilderness Camps: summer, spring break, school breaks
for elementary and middle school aged children
At designated times posted on the course calendar during school breaks and in the summer we have limited spots available for single-day and week-long camps. These programs teach important skills with professional adult leadership, maintain a low teacher to student ratio and have limited enrollment for small class size (aka not a daycare service!). Awesome opportunity for kids who are interested in outdoor and adventure skills.
A Monday- Friday week long summer camp program runs from 9 am- 4 pm daily (early drop off starting at 7:30 am and extended pick up until 5:30 pm). We will have indoor and outdoor activities (4 activity stations per day) as well as lunch break and free play time. Activities include a mix of wilderness, survival, outdoor, craft and homesteading skills such as shelter building, how to find water sources, making dehydrated fruit leather or jams, creating art from recycled materials, learning about local plants and animals. Specific summer camp activity schedules will be posted as the time nears.
