Today is County Fair day at the Farm! This afternoon, campers will participate in activities like corn hull, potato sack races and lawn games. For today only, the counselors will even let the campers pie them in the face, or pour water on them in our ‘Dunk’ tank! Campers will also have the opportunity to go to the barn and practice showing the animals by leading them around the pasture with a head collar. We may have some blue ribbon winners in this crowd! Finally, no County Fair is complete without delicious snacks, so there will be popcorn and other sweet treats.
The past two days at the Farm have been great. Thursday night and Friday night we sent all the Yurts out on their overnights, so everyone had the opportunity to sleep under the stars, make Pita Pizzas and eat S’mores! The groups who stayed at the farm enjoyed a barbecue and night awareness activities. Night awareness included a wild edibles hike, star gazing and bat hunting!
We’ve had a great few days, and I can’t wait to post pictures of our County Fair later today!
