WHAT IS AN

EDUCATOR?

An Educator works to increase ag literacy through implementing standards-based lessons culminating in an on-farm experience.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Ensuring students are aware of safety rules
  • Preparing students for what they'll experience on the farm
  • Delivering lesson plans (provided by Farm Camp) to create base level knowledge of the farm operation
  • Communicating with Ag Host(s) to ensure a successful event

HOW DOES FARM CAMP

HELP YOU?

Farm Camp works with Educators and agricultural producers to create a dynamic hands-on experience for students. We strive to provide Ag Hosts a platform to share their story and Educators opportunities to connect their students to the farm in meaningful ways.

We believe learning starts in the classroom prior to the Farm Camp experience. We will provide high-quality, standards-based lessons to Educators to begin the conversation about agriculture and educate their students on their specific agricultural topic corresponding to their Farm Camp visit.  Use of the lesson plans is highly suggested but not mandatory.

In addition to lessons, Farm Camp also provides Educators and Ag Hosts a checklist that helps them successfully coordinate their Farm Camp tour. Following the Farm Camp experience, Educators will have access to student evaluations to check for understanding. Following your tour, Farm Camp provides a social media platform and a press release outline to share your classroom's experience locally and online.

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.
