Summer Farm Fun Programs

About our Program

We are beyond thrilled to be rolling into 5th year of Summer Programs! 

These are very hands-on programs and were designed for children of all ages to work together in completing everyday tasks on the farm, all while teaching them very important life skills!

 

It is a great way for children and adolescents to learn how to interact with one another, the animals, care for themselves and the animals, have discipline, kindness, respect, build trust, independence, relationships, patience, while empowering your child to find and nurture their passions, all through laughter, fun, farm animals, and the beauty of the outdoors.

 

All projects will be done outside in the pasture, while learning about how to properly interact with, take care of, exercise, groom, and love our ducks, chickens, dogs, rabbits, cats, ponies, miniature donkeys, a steer, horses, miniature sheep and YES, another new addition that will be joining us here!

We create a very safe place for children to work the earth and animals with their hands while healing the mind and body through agricultural and animal-based activities.  

 

Every lesson that we have at The Giggling Life Care Farm includes lessons of gratitude, how to believe in yourself, and how powerful your mind is.

The kids absolutely love this responsibility, and this is where life gets pretty awesome! They begin to build confidence, trust, love, build relationships, respect and all of the aspects above. It is truly the most rewarding and therapeutic process that I know of.

 

This year we are adding Featured Lessons for each WEEK in ADDITION to our normal Farm Fun Teachings! A bit more enrichment for the kiddos and the topics are SO much fun!!

This year we have already put so much work into what we will be doing to ensure that you and your children have the best farm summer just yet!

 

Here is how our Summer Programs will work:

 

We will have three age groups and each age group will start at a different time. This way it will ensure a nice flow of traffic in the morning! Here are how the age groups are broken up:

  • Ages 4-6 years

  • Ages 7 -11 years

  • Ages 12-16 years

  • Tiny Tots - 18 months - 3 years

 

Each age group will have lesson plans according to their age and ability. This will make it super exciting for all kids to attend!

 

We will also be adding the option of ALL DAY Programs!

 

These programs will be available every other week of summer and will be offered as an EXTENDED Day Option when checking out on our website.

 

For example, if you choose a Monday/Wednesday Program, you can choose to do an Extended Day when you are checking out on our website cart!!

 

This way every other week, our programs will have the option to run from 9 to 3. 

IF...we sell out of our EXTENDED DAY Programs....we will add more throughout the summer! 

 

This is what you can expect for Extended Day Options:

  • Picnic and snack down in the creek area.

  • Water-play time by the creek

  • Yoga

  • Journal time

  • Art

  • Games

  • Sand-play

  • Play structure play

  • Small animals (chickens & bunnies) at the creek

  • and MORE!

We will be building a nice big shade structure down by the little creek for kids to be able to get out of the sun and enjoy the above activities! We will also be adding some fun play structures as well as a nice big sand area! 

 

Extended time will be only down at the play/creek area so that we can focus on making sure the kids have shade/rest/and water play! We all know afternoons at the farm can get quite warm...so this will be AMAZING!!!
