Activities

At Magnolia Farm Summer Day Camp, we plan our Activities with Our Mission in mind. Many activities will be offered on a rotating basis, such as MWF or TTH.   Note: Some activities may not be offered due to insufficient interest or inclement weather. Actives will vary daily; offerings may vary from session to session based on camper interest.

Campers will gain confidence and have fun as they learn the skills needed for this exciting sport!

Art projects may include clay, crafts from the farm and nature, such as corn husk dolls & sheeps wool, drawing and painting, jewelry making, knitting, felting, leather crafts, metal crafts, puppet making, sewing, weaving and basketry.  Performing Arts may include Camp Songs, Puppet Shows, and Skits.

We have planned activities in the barnyard, with the farm animals, in the garden, stream and pastures that integrate engaging activities with concepts of Science, Engineering, Art & Math (SEAM.)  Additional, we offer Environmental Education Games and Activities, and Fort Building with boxes (engineering and design.)

Field games with noodles and hula hoops, ping pong, basketball, volleyball, badminton, ultimate frisbee are offered in our playing field.  Indoor games may include board games, chess, card games and puzzles.

Campers who choose to participate in our riding program will have the opportunity to spend either one (MF Sampler) or two mornings (MF Traditional) with our wonderful horses, learning how to care for them and of course an English riding lesson in the arena! One additional group riding lessons is available for an additional fee (limited; please register early!)  NEW!  Campers who do not wish to ride should sign up for “MF Basic.”

Literary opportunities include our camp reading program, offered during our quiet time after lunch with books and magazines about horses, farm animals, gardening and science.  Campers may select books to read to themselves, in addition to our daily group story time.  Story Time Stories are often about horses, farm animals and gardening, with themes about creativity, inclusion, following rules, being a good friend and caring for the environment. Older campers may wish to bring their own chapter book.
