The days of summer are on the horizon. This means new opportunities for students to learn outside of the classroom through academic summer camps.
Kent Denver School, in conjunction with Quincy Farm, is offering two new camps for July 2017 that aim to connect kids with Colorado’s rich agricultural history at a local landmark in Cherry Hills Village.
Summer Camp Farm Style is an experiential learning camp for younger kids from kindergarten to second grade. It gives children a chance to explore nature and farm life, including waterways, precious land, farm animals, bugs and other critters. Children will learn through artistic sketching, poetry, and other nature based arts and exploration.
Fifth and sixth-graders go more in-depth with the exploration in the Cycles of Land, Farms & Food camp. They are taught what goes into a functioning food system and sustainable farming methods.
Both half-day camps are held at the historic Quincy Farm (4400 E. Quincy Ave.) and surrounding areas within the community for four days.
Each camp is lead by Kent instructors Kevin Nugent (for grades 5-6) and Julie Miles (for K-2) who will lead camp-goers on small and large activities including habitat care.
The fee for the learning events is $225 per child.
