The Adventures at Dairy Day Camp

Group Shot2

First Day of Camp – Group Shot!

Last year we ventured into Summer Camps at “The Haven” and LOVED it!  The kids had a blast, we had positive feedback from all the parents and we had so much fun sharing what we do with the campers.

I thought I would sum up our weekly adventures through some great pictures of the kids!


We started off every morning with chores, making sure the girls had plenty to eat and then tidying up the barnyard.

Head Shot

Each camper was assigned their very own calf for the week!


The campers brushed their calves…

Bath Time

and bathed them everyday.

Leading Practice2

They practiced leading the calves daily for the demonstration to friends and family at the end of the week.

Picking Packs

They “picked the pack” to make sure the calves had a clean and dry place to take a nap.


They played games…


and made friends.

Calf Feeding

They learned how to feed the babies…


and grain them….

Calf Love

and even let them lick their fingers!


They went on a hike…

uh oh cows out

which ended with some excitement when we came out to loose heifers!

Drip Drip Drop

Played some more games,

Butter Making

and made their own butter!

Calf Barn3

Went on a field trip to the main farm to see the calf barn.


Even managed a little quiet time…sometimes.

Haven Chores

Did some more chores,


and earned a Blue Ribbon!

We are very excited about our 2016 Dairy Day Camps!  We will be holding two weeks of camp this year:

  • June 27th through July 1st (5 days)
  • July 5th through July 8th (4 days)

The weeks will hold many of the same experiences that the campers had last year but we are planning to add some afternoon workshops as well.  These have not been finalized yet but the campers can expect to possibly hear from older 4-Hers, from service providers here at the farm such as our vet or hoof trimmer, and we are working on a great field trip!
