Camp Descriptions 2019
Campers will participate in experiments and STEM Challenges throughout the week, such as food chemistry, renewable energy challenges, and animal science. Each week will have new activities, so there’s something new for every camper. All activities are adapted to the various ages of the campers.
Wild About Nature
Campers will get in touch with nature in our newest addition to our Farm Camp Schedule. Campers will participate in nature based experiments, exploration, and get creative using resources from around the farm. We will explore The Lands and learn about the world around us.

Should campers bring a lunch?
All campers should bring a healthy, hearty lunch and a water bottle to use throughout the day. TLHF will provide snacks.
What if my child has allergies?
If your child has any food allergies or sensitivities, please send them safe snacks. If your child requires an epi-pen or inhalers, please bring these items to camp each day and your child’s counselor will be able to assist you.
What items should my child bring?
We recommend that each child bring sunscreen, bug spray, a water bottle, weather appropriate clothing, extra clothing, a towel, and extra shoes. Please leave any electronics or valuables at home. TLHF is not responsible for any misplaced items.
What should my child wear to camp?
All campers must wear closed toe shoes at all times. Your child should be dressed appropriately for the weather and environment. Many of the activities at camp can get a little messy, so please send your camper in old clothing.
What happens if it rains?
Camp continues, rain or shine. In the case of heat advisories and/or storms, we keep the campers inside the Education Center and do indoor activities until it is safe to go outside.
When are water and hike days?
Typically (unless the weather forces us to switch days), hike day is Wednesday and water day is Friday. All campers must wear closed toe shoes in the water. Crocs and flip flops will not be allowed. They are dangerous in the water and tend to get lost easily. Water shoes, old sneakers, rain boot, and keen-type sandals are recommended footwear for water day. Your child can wear their bathing suit under their clothing on Friday morning, and will have the opportunity to change before pickup at the end of the day.
