August Farm Camp Scholarships
Thanks to the generosity of the Women’s Fund of Greater La Crosse we are able to offer scholarships for our August Farm Camps. There are still openings in both the Art Exploration and the Budding Scientists camps. Any student entering 2nd – 8th grade is eligible to attend these camps.
Are you ready to dig, run, build, draw, garden, eat and discover? GROW presents Summer on the Farm, where students will plant, tend, and harvest fruits and vegetables and explore where our food comes from. Students will also learn how to identify species and understand the relationship between each part of the farm and the larger ecosystem. We will spend time each day being active outside including: hiking up the bluffs, building forts, splashing in the creek, and caring for the animals at the farm.
Summer on the Farm – Art Exploration
August 1st – 4th, entering grades 2nd – 8th
Summer on the Farm – Budding Scientist
August 8th – 11th, entering grades 2nd – 8th
