Forest and Farm Nature Camp 2019
The Camp: This is a hands-on nature adventure camp for up to 30 students entering 3rd to 6th grades. The days will be led by licensed forest/nature educators Anouschka Andresen and Shannon Clery and will include nature crafts, journaling, observations, arts, music, games and hiking. An important feature of Willow-Witt Ranch is the certified organic farm; campers will be working with the animals, collecting eggs and harvesting vegetables for their meals each day. The kitchen skills/cooking classes will be led by Megan Lozano, a chef with special interest in teaching children food and cooking skills. The evening programs feature Tish McFadden and Thomas Doty leading interactive and musical storytelling using the teachings of Takelma elder ‘Grandma’ Agnes Baker Pilgrim.
Accommodations: The campground is reserved exclusively for this camp. Campers will sleep 5-6 in large tents with counselors.
