Belle Vie Farm Summer Camp 2022
Belle Vie Farm's Summer Camp 2022 offer summer camps for children ages 3-5 and 6-9. Our weekly summer camps run from June 27-August 19. Registration now open!
Morning camp for all ages (8:30am-12:30pm) is $250. Aftercare Camp (12:30pm-3:30pm) is available for campers who are at least rising first graders. The cost per week is $125. The week of July 4 is a 4-day camp week and is prorated accordingly. A 25% deposit is due at registration, with the balance due March 15, 2022. May 1 is the deadline for refunds.
Our camps and school activities have been 100% outdoors since the start of Covid-19. We do not require children to wear masks outdoors (some do and anyone is welcome to). Teachers wear masks, indoors and outdoors. If children in the 3-5 age group go indoors, a well-fitted mask is required. This may change as vaccinations become available.
Current Wildflower School students pay their normal monthly tuition rate if attending for all 8 weeks of camp.
Summer Camp 2022 will add a new Artisan Hut! This space will house materials that allow campers to create various and sundry amazing art products: dyed cement candle holders; wire and clay sculptures; beeswax, soy and coco apricot wax candles; large paintings; soaps, bath bombs and melts, body scrubs, bubble bath and more; macrame; hand-painted dishware; fabric mache art and much more!
