​PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN

Bunnies , Guineas & Piggies Week!     July 30 - Aug 3


Smooth river rocks, pebbles, clay and sand of every strata are just waiting in the creek for collection and sorting!  Panning for gold and gemstones is fascinating work and tons of fun.  We learn pioneering skills, make soap, candles, and other hands-on projects. Real Native American arrowheads have even been discovered. Cooking on an open-fire also brings joy and a sense of accomplishment during this action-packed week!

This camp is for the pony lover in your life.  We spend time every morning with our pony experts grooming, caring for and learning about these adorable equines.  We will learn about the care of ponies, brushing, feeding, bathing, safety and being around them.  How to lead, mount, and ride.  We will also be working on obstacles, communication, teamwork, character building and responsibility.  Pony-themed crafts, games, stories, art and more!  Musical saddles or square dancing anyone?

ANNOUNCING "LITTLE FARMERS" CAMP for Ages 2.5 - 4!

Let your little one enjoy our shorter version of Farm Camp, designed specifically for "Little Farmers."  Most of our time will be outdoors loving our smaller farm animals while in shaded areas, plus some time indoors for cooling off in the A/C and imaginative play and crafts. Little Farmers Camp is based by the adorable log cabin, and is separate from the "big kids." A loving, nurturing camp for your little one to immerse in nature, farm animals, and the work of children...play!  We follow the weekly themes with age-appropriate learning and crafts.

5-day, 3-day, and 2-day Registration Available.  Details below...

Dinosaur Dig Week!     June 11 - 15


We have loads of pure clay just inches beneath the grass and along the creek at the farm. Grab a shovel, dig to your heart's content, then sculpt, mold, create.  You may find fossils along the way - or even gems!  Be a farmer and get your hands dirty planting the crop. Learn about seeds, sprouts, and how things grow.  Learn about wiggly worms, composting, and do cool crafts for your home garden.

Ponies Week for Younger Kids (Ages 5-8)!  July 2 - 6​​

Fairies & Gnomes Week!     June 18 - 22


Little fluffy bunnies - need we say more?  Our domestic lion-head bunnies are adorable and calm so campers can hold, care for, and learn all about them. Guinea pigs are sweet and always grateful for a blade of grass to nibble on (think "eating a spaghetti noodle one bite at a time")  Muckley, the Kune Kune pig, will be the star of the show this week - more like a big dog than a pig.  A good tummy scratch and he is in heaven.  Crafts, games, and other fun activies will have your little one hoppin' this week!

Summer Camp at Sun Star Farm - 2018







The summer is a wonderful time to be outside building fairy castles, feeding chickens and llamas, taking baby goats for a walk, scampering through the forested trails, and flying kites on breezy days…

Similar to our school year program, summer camp weeks provide opportunities for imaginative play and natural discovery, which childhood experts recognize as essential to children's healthy emotional and intellectual development.

We welcome children who enjoy and need lots of outdoor time. Storytelling, puppetry, singing, water play, crafting from natural materials, gardening, farm animal care and more…will fuel your child's imagination!  Everyday ends with a delicious organic popsicle - yum.

All Camp weeks have TONS of farm animal care and interaction, yet each week has a different theme and educational component.

Petunia, Lolly and Pop, our feinting goats lead the way this week.  We take them on walks through the forest - just like walking your dog at home although more munching along the way! Cuddles and Patches stand out in our sheep herd.  We learn all about them and what makes them happy.  With sheep's wool and our mini-llamas fiber, we make amazing fiber art projects to take home so your child will remember their favorite member of the herd!

Puppetry and Storytelling Week!   July 16 - 20​​

Food Art and Gardening Week!   July 9 - 13​​

​​​​Ever dig for dinosaur bones or wonder how nomads lived and ate?  We'll excavate an archeological site and discover unusual things as we pull them out of the earth.  We build shelters, "hunt" for dinosaurs, cook over an open fire and more.  Who knew that dinosaurs often roamed around Sun Star Farm?!  Feed your little ones primal inner nature!

Sun Star Farm

​​​Did you know that fairies and gnomes live in our enchanted forest? See where and learn their clever ways!  Build teeny tiny houses using natural materials and these magical creatures may come to live at your home too.  Craft a beautiful fairy door to put in your room against a wall to allow fairies to magically enter and play. Paint fairy wands and make fairy or dragon wings to wear. Hear stories of these special little friends. Expect your child's imagination to be awakened!

The art of storytelling and puppetry will spark your child’s imagination and creativity.  We will make table and finger puppets and marionettes and the children will take turns collaborating and sharing their ideas with others through this beautiful art form.  We also take our capers to the forest and perform skits and tell stories in our forest theatre!
