WHAT IS A

COORDINATOR?

A Field Day Coordinator is a local volunteer (Educator, Ag Host, community member, etc) who organizes a safe on-farm experience with local classrooms and hosts.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Organize and lead a local Field Day that serves multiple classrooms and includes multiple Ag Hosts
  • Serve as the point person for communication between Farm Camp, Educators and Ag Hosts
  • Ensure Educators and Ag Hosts have access to Farm Camp resources to make their tour successful
  • Provide feedback to Farm Camp following the Field Day

HOW DOES FARM CAMP

HELP YOU?

A Farm Camp Field Day is a complex event that works with educators and agricultural producers to create a dynamic hands-on experience for students.  It is our goal to allow Ag Hosts a platform to share their story and career opportunities for future employees. 

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, agenda templates and more to help make your Field Day a success. We have a library of resources to provide your Educators and Ag Hosts as well.  We want your event to run smoothly and we've given you the assets to do just that.

As the communicator between all involved, we provide you with all of the resources to then share to all of your Educators and Ag Hosts involved.  We want everyone to work together to create a high-quality experience for our students to increase their ag literacy and provide a meaningful experience out on the farm.

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
