Exploration & Fun at Farm Camp
Presented by Providence Health & Services, Sauvie Island Center’s Spring Break Camp is outdoor experience where children are outside soaking up the fresh air and exploring the natural world. Each day at camp is a new adventure as we explore and learn on our site at Topaz Farm.
Through traditional camp activities—like games, camp songs, arts and crafts and more—we’ll focus on different parts of the Sauvie Island Center curriculum including:
- Soil Exploration: Dig in and learn about healthy soil.
- Seed to Harvest: Plant, tend and harvest the Grow Lunch Garden.
- Plant Parts Investigation: Explore the farm and plants we can eat.
- Wildlife & Food Web: Who else has been foraging on the farm?
- Pollination Station: Meet these hard-working farm friends.
