Field Day Coordinators

WHAT IS A

COORDINATOR?

A Field Day Coordinator is a person (Educator, Ag Host, community member, etc) who implements Farm Camp best practices to allow for a safe on-farm experience.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Serve as the point person for communication between Farm Camp, Educators and Ag Hosts
  • Ensure Educators and Ag Hosts have access to Farm Camp materials to make them successful
  • Report feedback to Farm Camp from their Field Day

HOW DOES FARM CAMP

HELP YOU?

Farm Camp works with educators and agricultural producers to create a dynamic hands-on experience for students while also providing Ag Hosts a platform to share their story.

As a coordinator, you're assisting in an experience that will further student education and share the agricultural story of our local producers. You are the linchpin. The person that serves as the primary point of contact and coordinator for the event.Farm Camp assists you in providing checklists, invitations and more to help make your Field Day a success. In addition, you'll be able to provide your educators and ag hosts with assets as well.

We believe learning starts in the classroom prior to the Farm Camp experience. We provide high-quality lessons to educators to begin the conversation about agriculture and educate their students on a specific agricultural topic leading up to their Farm Camp visit. We believe a successful tour comes together through preparation. We help Ag Hosts by providing video resources on how to deliver content to varying age levels. In addition, Farm Camp provides Ag Hosts with a checklist that helps them successfully coordinate their Farm Camp experience. A press release outline is another resource provided to help the Ag Host share their story and the success of the event locally.

Types of Field Days

A Farm Camp Field Day requires a coordinator and brings together multiple classrooms and multiple farms or agribusinesses for a day of agricultural experiences.

  • Single Location Field Day
    Ag Hosts meet the students at one location and students rotate around stations to hear from multiple Ag Hosts
  • Multiple Location Field Day
    Ag Hosts meet the students at one location (AM/PM) and students rotate around stations to hear from multiple Ag Hosts and then students go on a bus tour (AM/PM) to see different types of farms/agribusinesses
  • Bus Tour
    Students tour multiple farms/agribusiness by traveling by bus to each stop
