Dilley Beans Daycare is located 1 mile south of downtown Forest Grove, Oregon on a 20 acre working farm. Farm Camp will take place down on the farm with all the animals, plants and farm fun. Summer time is filled with bringing in hay, baby animals, vegetable garden tending and of course watching all the animals the pastures. We'll even learn how to make some food the old fashion way.
We welcome children of all abilities who enjoy lots of outdoor time. Storytelling, puppetry, singing, crafting from natural materials, gardening, farm animal care and more…will fuel your child's imagination. During our time together, children will explore many aspect of farming including animal husbandry, watching bugs, planting and harvesting produce, and learning about all aspects of farming the best way children learn...hands on!
Rain or shine, children will have a wonderful week filled with learning and playing. In the event of rain some of that play will take place in the barn.
Farm Camp is open to any child ages 3 and up who are completely potty trained. Children will be fed a farm based snack that meets USDA food guidelines and is primarily sourced from the farm.
Similar to our full time childcare program, summer camp provides opportunities for imaginative play and natural discovery, which childhood experts recognize as essential to children's healthy emotional and intellectual development.
Space is limited.
