Event Description

The Village of Los Ranchos is proud to announce the return of Spring Break Farm Camp at the Los Ranchos Agri-Nature Center at 4920 Rio Grande Blvd NW!  We invite children currently enrolled in grades K-5 to join us April 14-18, 2014 for five days of fun and learning.  Campers will experience the connections between growing and eating healthy foods and taking care of our bodies and our land.

After a daily morning message, we will prepare a healthy snack and get our bodies moving with yoga poses and fun exercises.  Throughout each day of Farm Camp, campers will participate in the full process of raising vegetables, herbs, and flowers; from soil preparation, direct seeding, and transplanting, to watering, weeding, harvesting, and of course, cooking and eating the “fruits of their labor!” 


Campers will get down and dirty in our vegetable gardens as they explore how a seed turns into a tomato plant and investigate the insects and other pollinators that live amongst the plants and weeds.  They will visit with and learn about farm animals, bake in a solar oven, and learn about New Mexico’s traditional acequia system.  It will be a week like they’ve never experienced before!


Each day will have a different theme such as “Seed Secrets,” “Fun in the Mud,” and “Farm Animals.”  Mornings will be spent learning and working in the organic gardens and exploring the property.  Afternoons will include rest and relaxing with stories after lunch, then having a blast with various experiments, games, cooking, nature-inspired art, and creative explorations!


Spring Break Farm Camp is Monday – Friday, 9 am to 3 pm. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. 


Register TODAY as space is extremely limited!
