A snack will be provided, but children are asked to bring their own lunch Monday – Thursday. 

All sessions enjoy a Friday Finale where family members are invited to a “farm fresh” lunch at noon. Lunch is be prepared by staff and campers.

Your child’s spot is not confirmed until a $30 non-refundable deposit is paid. Registrations and full payments must be received at least one week prior to the start of camp. Once camp begins, we will not be able to provide refunds.  

Camperships (Need-based scholarships) are available. For more information, contact S. Rejane Cytacki at 262-681-8527.

We ask that children wear weather-appropriate clothes (no clogs or flip flops), including hat, sun lotion, and mosquito repellant as needed.

Children will have the chance to interact with a variety of animals (alpacas, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, and cats), get their hands into the soil, water, and explore the eco-systems. Some of last year's activities included the following.
