School Programs

Are you considering bringing your class on an overnight adventure at 123 Farm? Just as in our day programs, we gear our curriculum towards both fun and learning. Activities are based on many different topics and interests such as animals, crafts, horticulture, nature and the outdoors, cooking, and farm-food education. Overnight students get to truly immerse themselves in the reality of a fully functioning farm...The work, excitement and challenges.

 

Our instructors are employees that run the farm on a day to day basis and have a passion for educating the next generation about how commercial versus organic farming can affect the environment, eating healthy and humane care of animals.

Overnight Program

3 days and 2 nights of fun and learning!

Experience a working farm from all of it’s different aspects. Why grow lavender or rosemary? What can you do with it? How is it suited to our climate versus, say Colorado? Is it easy to take care of farm animals? How do they stay healthy? How do people stay healthy? Why does it matter if we can just go to the doctor and get medicine that makes us better?

With our overnight program, students have all of the experiences that are part of our day programs, plus added bonuses, like campfire, night hike, lip balm making and being part of an actual essential oil distillation.

$255 per student*, $95 per chaparone** (Available Tuesday-Thursday)

*Minimum 20 students.

**123 Farm does not provide overnight adult supervision; this will be the responsibility of the school and parents/caregivers to coordinate.
