Children in grades three through seven can take part in a six-day Extreme Farm Explorers program that begins the evening of July 21 and continues from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day until the 5 p.m. closing program July 26.

Overnight camp will be held for grades five through 12, with one- and two-week sessions beginning July 7, 21 and 28.
