Little partners looking for something fun to do this summer need look no further than Bremertons Little Sprouts Schools summer farm camp. The camp will be at Pheasant Fields Farm, 13274 Clear Creek Road, in Silverdale.
The camp gives campers a taste of life on the farm where a plethora of feathered friends and lessons on ecology and farming abound.
The camp has all the traditions that make camp fun, like singing, games, sports and crafts. Everything has an underlying farm theme, according to Jo Walters, owner of Little Sprouts School.
Pheasant Fields is a working family farm with sheep, goats, chickens and ducks. Campers get hands-on lessons about the animals and the farms crops and also learn about greenhouses and grow their own sunflowers to take home.
As for arts and crafts, the farm has a 5-acre wooded area, which gives campers ample room to gather natures material like moss, bark and flowers.
There are four, two-week sessions running from July 5 to Aug. 26. The camp is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, except for opening day, which will be on Tuesday, July 5, because of the July 4 holiday.
The camp is open to children ages 6-11 at a cost of $120 per session or $420 for the eight-week summer season. Discounts are available for families with more than one child enrolled.
