Sign your kiddos up for a camping experience they will never forget! LDBA is pleased to announce our Farm Camp. For five days and nights your child will learn invaluable skills such as how to pitch their own tents, how to build and manage shelters and fires safely, how to make arrows, tie knots, identify plants, mushrooms and trees, how to milk cows, feed and care for chickens, pigs, sheep and goats. We will learn about bees, gardens, pottery, foraging, and so much more. Daily art classes will be held and visiting artists will teach special workshops. Food will come from surrounding farms, (we have a chef on staff-thank you Scarlett!) as well as food from Bell & Anchor, Mark and Bettinas new restaurant in Great Barrington! We will visit farms in the area, but the main farm school will be on the Firth Farm. Kids will sleep in canvas tents, hike in the great outdoors, swim, fish, explore, play soccer, hone their skills and enjoy the great outdoors. We have 6 core councilors (cpr certified) who will be there day and night.
Parents are welcome on the final night, Friday, August 9th to come join us for dinner, smores and a sleep over- (parent transport and camping supplies not included)-
