All registration links and detailed camp descriptions found below. 
 
“Fed by Farms”  This hands-on day camp teaches children about soil and plants while providing them with opportunities to get their hands dirty planting seeds while conducting experiments and investigating different soil types.  Children will also learn about livestock farming from local farmers in our area along with experiencing hands-on tasks involved with livestock farming.  Youth will come to learn and appreciate how people are fed by farms.  The cost is $20. Camp is held in the basement of Dallmeyer Hall on the Washington County Fairgrounds.
