To Register for Camp Eureka 2016

In 2016 we offered 3 sessions of Day Camp visiting different farms in Cornwall, CT:

Each five-day session will run from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. with two snack periods. Children will provide their own snacks.

Churning Butter

June 27th-July 1; Farmhouse Week

The farmhouse is the traditional center of the homestead. It’s where the food is preserved, stored, prepared, and served. It’s where the seeds are started and the seedlings grown. The farmhouse kitchen garden always has the best herbs within easy reach of a busy cook. Clothes are patched and mended. Quilts are made and stories, told. Our first session of camp will focus on sewing, baking, dairy products, gardening, and the tasks related to maintaining life from the farmhouse. The registration deadline for Farmhouse Week is May 30.

During our second session, we will move from the farmhouse out into the orchard and woods to explore the many ways trees play a role in our daily lives; providing us with food, heat, shelter, paper, and more.- We may visit an area woodworking shop, local forest, sawmill, and an orchard as we learn about basic building and fruit production, try whittling, make paper, and cook over an open fire. Registration deadline: June 22.
