Run! Jump! Roll! Play! We promise that our youngest campers won’t come home clean in this all-senses-on-deck adventure! Join us on the farm as we see, taste, smell, hear, and get our hands dirty exploring all the outdoors has to offer.
In Garden Senses Exploration, we will:
Get Messy—Create crafts like planter pots and bird nests, play games in the wildflower-filled farm fields and join our world-famous sponge war in the sprinklers.
Taste Test the Garden—Campers will enjoy our Youth Garden and the many edible plants there, from sweet bell peppers to salad flowers. You heard that right, we’ll eat real flowers in this camp!
Use Your Nose—Farm animals can be stinky! But it’s so fun to pet the goats, chickens, rabbits, and even the wriggling worms who help out on our farm.
Make Some Noise—Can you hear all the bird tunes in the trees? After taking pictures of our songbirds, make instruments and join our Garden Band for a loud drum circle jamboree.
See the Sights—Celebrate the summer color explosion!See everything there is to see while playing all kinds of garden games in the midst of acres and acres of beauty!
We can’t wait to taste farm fresh snacks, play fun and colorful games, and get our hands dirty on the farm.
21 Acres is a safe, healthy, and packed-with-fun place for young adventurers to learn about a local, regenerative farm. We use sustainable practices without using any nasty chemicals—the perfect setting for an amazing summer experience that’s truly inspiring for kids. During our summer camps, children will explore a variety of wildlife, farm life, crafts, adventures, experiments and games on a real working farm. All summer camps will include:
Winged Wednesdays—Ever wanted to meet an owl or hold a hawk? Meet John the Falconer to get up-close-and-personal with raptors on Wednesday. After learning more about our feathery friends, you will be ready to build your very own bird house here at the farm.
Digging in the Dirt—At our summer camps, we love to get dirty! Campers have plenty of supervised opportunities to run, explore, play, and dig in the rich farm soil. Get a real appreciation for what’s just below your feet as you play in the muddy earth. You won’t come home with clean clothes.
Meet the Animals—Our animals play an important role at the 21 Acres farm. Come meet Lucky & Skippy, our friendly goats, as well as our chickens (and one confused duck!), rabbits, worms and more.
Walking Field Trips—The area is home to many local farms and experiences we want to share with our campers! Walk with us to the Sammamish River, Tonnemaker’s Farm Stand and other local farms to explore how other people grow food.
Special Guests—Each week, we will bring experts out to speak about what they know best— salmon scientists, our beekeeper, local chefs, musicians and more.
Oooh! Smoothies!—The seasonal fruit on our farm is delicious! Pick your own natural fruit ingredients and try experimenting with new flavor combinations.
Make & Take—We love building things with our own hands, from bug houses to flower-pressing, planters to papier-mâché creations and more. While crafts vary from week to week, campers will always have something to take home and proudly share with friends and family.
Friday Pizza Party—Who doesn’t love pizza? Help harvest ingredients, prepare, and cook pizzas in our wood-fired oven every Friday. This pizza party caps off each and every week of camp.
We believe that kids can help heal the planet. 21 Acres is an inspiring place to learn about better farming practices through reducing greenhouse gas emissions, practicing no-till methods, eliminating nasty chemicals and working with Mother Nature as our ally. The 21 Acres Farm, and our network of sustainable and regenerative farms, means hope for the future—a future in which campers will take an active role. We’re excited to learn together about how regenerative farming is a solution to climate change.
