Got a five- to 13-year-old and looking for something both arty and outdoorsy for them to do? How about an art camp on a working farm? Kids will make memory boxes and musical instruments, turn raw wool to yarn, herd sheep and make pickles, among many other activities. (By way of full disclosure, the camp is co-led by personal pals of certain Upstater writers, so we can vouch for them.)
The site of all this creativity is Stony Creek Farm, which is also an agritourism spot year round, in case you’d like to stay in one of their eco-tents while your kiddo is painting in the fields. (We included it in last week’s round-up of farm stays.)
The camp is Monday through Friday from 9AM to 3PM, and $125 per child, per week-long session (with a discount for siblings). Session one starts July 9. More info here.
