The camp starts at Strock’s Farm in Mechanicsburg where campers harvest and thresh wheat, make ice cream, test soil, and discover seeds. The second day begins at Monroe Elementary School in Boiling Springs, where campers make loaves of bread, explore honeybees, and turn berries into jam. Campers also visit Brymesser’s Dairy Farm and Stover’s Dairy Farm to learn about cows and milk products, make butter, and watch a modern milking operation.
Registration is limited to 48 campers between 8-10 years old. The registration fee is $50 and includes meals, snacks, program materials, and take-home items. Contact the 4-H Department at 717-240-6500 or visit http://extension.psu.edu/cumberland for more information or to register.
