WHAT IS A FARM CAMP

EDUCATOR?

You know that engaging your students is the best way to develop deeper knowledge of your curriculum. With the help of our Farm Camp Program Director you will create an opportunity for your students to experience real world connections between your classroom and local agriculture.

Ways We Help:

  • Developing connections with local AgHosts to build your experience
  • Preparing the AgHost to deliver a positive, interactive experience for your students
  • Providing tailored lesson plans that build on your existing classroom curriculum to deepen your students understanding
  • Managing consistent communication between you and the AgHost to ensure a successful event
