Scheduled when students are not in school on teacher work days or holidays provides an alternative to day care for parents. Home schooled students are welcome as well.
Past Day Camps included a variety of topics like "Thankful For Our Farmers", "Eggciting Music on the Farm", "Horsing Around", "From Seeds to Sprouts", "Trees for Life and Life Beneath the Trees", "From Pasture to Your Closet" and "Protect our Pollinators" to name a few.

Flint Rock Farm has partnered in the fall with PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center and Spookley the Square Pumpkin to raise awareness for bullying prevention. Students learn the value of respect and kindness as they walk through the Storybook Trail where the story is on large metal signs.
The spring story featured in the Storybook Trail is "JellyBean and the Unbreakable Egg." Students will learn the value of teamwork and kindness as they walk along the trail through the trees. You can use our farm for your family or group's Easter egg hunt. You provide the eggs and we will hide them for you.
Keep in mind that the farm can be used to host birthday parties, holiday get togethers, family reunions, individual family outings and business get togethers any time or season of the year. Just call to discuss your options and to reserve a date.
