EcoFarmers II: Tending the Garden


July 5-7, 9:00 – 3:00

$85 + $10 for pre/aftercare  (3 days only) JMM 1st – 4th grade/Trueblood 3-Kindergarten

How does your garden grow? Return to the farm for a mid-summer check on your garden! What has it grown for you? What does it need to thrive? This camp will allow children to tend and manage the plots they started earlier, while increasing their knowledge of compost, garden design, community projects and sustainability. Not limited to participants in EcoFarmers I! All interested campers welcome. Dress to be in the garden for digging and harvesting: campers need to bring a water bottle, snacks and a sack lunch. Gloves, sunscreen, and hats also recommended. 

Space Camp: Rockets Rock

July 10 – 14 9:00 -3:00

$125 + $10 for pre/aftercare 

JMM 2nd-6th grade/Trueblood 3-Kindergarten

Be a rocket scientist this summer! We will investigate the secrets of flight and propulsion, rocket design, and engineering science. Practice the drop tower, master the glider, and delve into the latest challenges that NASA has overcome, like parachuting into Mars and living in space. 

EcoFarmers III: Farm to Table

One day only, Late August, 4:00 – 7:00 pm

$5 per person

Open to all campers and their families who attended either of the earlier camps, this event is a Harvest Celebration to reap the benefits of the work done throughout the summer. Campers will arrive in the afternoon to pick vegetables, herbs and flowers, and show off their gardens. Produce will be taken to Trueblood Preschool for a mini cooking class and shared meal with families. Watch for an invitation to this program in mid-July.


Giant Beaver Breakouts

The next four games will be running on July 14th and 15th, and each can accommodate up to eight people.

5:30pm and 7:30pm each night

Registration will be up soon, $8 per individual, groups of 3 or more $7 per person. If you have a group of eight, we would be more than happy to set up one breakout just for you! Just contact us at 765-983-1303 or email Erika Nelson at nelsoer1@earlham.edu.

The Museum is burning! You have only 60 minutes to crack the codes, find the clues, and solve the puzzles to rescue the world’s most complete giant beaver skeleton before it becomes toast*.

This isn't an average weekend activity, this is a fast-paced 60-minute challenge for people who like to solve mysteries!

If you are successful, you will earn a limited edition commemorative “I saved the giant beaver” button, and your group's photo will be posted on our Joseph Moore Museum Facebook page.
