Children’s Programs

FarmWonders

What are the kids up to at the UBC Farm? They are most likely gardening their plots in the children’s garden, learning how to make a pumpkin loaf with their mentors, or identifying bugs along the agroforestry trail. There is a bounty of activities that we find our farm kids engaging in: field games, seeding in the greenhouse, fort-building, composting, apple-picking, chicken-feeding, berry-picking, potato-hunting and medicine-making, just to name a few.

Due to COVID-19, we’ve altered and reduced our children’s progamming for 2021. The good news is that FarmWonders day camps are going ahead with a new partnership with UBC Camps! See more below. For full information on the UBC Farm’s Camp Safety plan, click here.

In addition, we are following the COVID-19 guidelines from UBC Camps which can be viewed here.

Nature Explorers Day Camps

Explore, run, create and learn in our beautiful Children’s Learning Garden, observe beehives and in-season crops on field trips around the farm.

The theme of each of our one-week camps will be learned through a variety of exciting recreational activities, crafts and hands-on experiences. Camps include forest adventures, planting, eco-crafts, popsicle making, and (of course) a chance to harvest, cook and eat fresh garden produce!

We are excited to announce a new partnerships with UBC Camps!
