WHAT IS A FARM CAMP
Within Farm Camp, the Educator works to increase ag literacy through implementing standards-based lessons, connecting with an Ag Host for an on-farm experience, and wrapping up with a career lesson.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
- Ensuring students are aware of safety rules
- Preparing students for what they'll experience on the tour
- Delivering lesson plans (provided by Farm Camp) to create base-level knowledge of the farm operation
- Communicating with the Ag Host to ensure a successful event
Types of Farm Camps
Single Stop Farm Camp
A Single Stop Farm Camp is just how it sounds. One Classroom + One Farm or Agribusiness = A Single Stop Farm Camp.
Farm Camp Field Day
A Farm Camp Field Day requires a coordinator and brings together multiple classrooms and multiple farms or agribusinesses for a day of agricultural experiences.
