Camp Glen Brook
The third graders make their first trip to Camp Glen Brook, an exciting week that promises to deepen their connection and sense of responsibility to the earth. The children learn about composting, the act of transforming food waste into healthy soil for future use. Students also harvest fruits and vegetables, prepare apple cider and maple syrup, and grind wheat. They enjoy the fruits of their labor by transforming the foodstuffs into breads, pies, vegetable soups and salads. Additionally, these children also participate in wool shearing, lambing, and planting seedlings for the greenhouse. Through immersion in the farm life, students learn the importance of sustainable farms in our everyday lives.
