Homesteading Camp is BACK!
Kids will love learning, playing, tasting, growing and cooking at our Schoolhouse Homesteading Camp. For children ages 6-11
The Schoolhouse is an engaging space for kids to learn new skills, make new friends and explore their creativity!
Each day is different and kids are asked what THEY want to do at the beginning of the week. If they really get into paper making then we’ll do that again. If they are super excited about making bread then we’ll spend the mornings making different doughs. Kids have the BEST ideas.

A Typical Day:
9am - welcome - visit with chickens - water plants etc
9:30 - get cooking! we’ll make lunch and snacks each day
10:30 - snack - maybe muffins we made? maybe smoothies from the blender bike?
12 - lunch together - this is the highlight of the day!
12:30 - craft time! make homemade paper, work on a knitting project, make homemade lip balm… so many projects!! or we take a nature walk to the forest or local park.
2pm - what a great day! see you tomorrow.

We can accommodate most food allergies and do not serve any peanuts or tree nuts. When you register your child please list any allergies. 

Early Drop / Late Pick up
We can accommodate an early drop off at 8:30 am and late pick up at 2:30 at no extra charge. Kids can help set-up clean up or work on their projects.

All of our classes take place in the beautiful kitchen and workshop at Sugar Beet Schoolhouse at 349 Ashland Ave. in River Forest.
