Young Farmer Camp
Registration for 2013 camp sessions is February 2 for lottery ticket holders
Each Summer, children entering 1st through 8th grades can experience the wonders of farm life during a week in our Young Farmer's Camp Program at Muscoot Farm. This is a unique opportunity for your child to learn about the farm, and the animals that reside on these 777-acres.
Under the supervision of our Camp Director and an enthusiastic well-trained staff, children will collect eggs, milk cows, groom animals and bake traditional Muscoot recipes. They'll also try their hands at hand cranking ice-cream, making crafts and maintaining a garden. This hands-on approach helps children develop a greater understanding of food production, the care and maintenance of domestic animals and an appreciation for life on a farm. Group size for camp is limited to 12 children and camp does fill up very quickly.
Registration for Westchester residents will be by lottery for the 2012 Young Farmers Program. To obtain a lottery ticket you must be a Westchester County resident and must stop by the farm between the dates of January 2-16 between the hours of 9 a.m. � 4 p.m. Monday � Friday and noon � 4 p.m. on Saturday & Sunday. Registration will then be held on Saturday, February 2, 2012, for lottery ticket holders only. Non-Westchester County residents may register for the Young Farmers Program beginning Monday, February 16.
