2017 SUMMER DAY CAMPS! Get your kids out of the city and into the fresh country air for some outdoor action, learning cool and fascinating things with a multitude of hands-on encounters with amazing animals, some crazy good leaders, and other kids their age who also love this dynamic, fun environment we call Butterfield Acres.
A significant change and cause for major celebration for many of you who have been coming to Butterfield Acres Farm Camp for years: hint... running water... flush! Yes!!! for real!! Farmers Henry and Jennifer get the credit for putting major smiles on our faces.
REGISTRATION starts Jan 20... Registrations before March 31 include a free Season Pass for your camper! And... Farm Bucks Bonus when siblings register or a child registers for more than one week of camp.
SCHOOL BOOKINGS are ongoing for our classic Spring Babies Program. There is nothing like hands-on learning in the farm environment. Visit with all the many different farm animals... up close and personal. Have a chance to really touch an udder and see if you can do some milking! A ride through the woods on a giant wagon pulled behind our so-big-and-strong tractor is a highlight. Children experience first hand so many of the activities they would have, had they grown up on a family farm in Alberta. New this year: two of the teachers on staff have built our wonderful Nursery Rhyme Park... all sorts of activity centres to explore and reinforce the magic of Nursery Rhymes (which typically involve farm animals which were very much a part of evereday life in the age of nursery rhymes). Nursery Rhyme Park is part of the 2hr Farmyard program. Our 4 hour program now includes as part of the Horse Shoe Trail hike, an array of life-size 2 dimensional woodland animal signs... when was the last time you measured yourself up against a life-sized moose? or a black bear.... how about a porcupine?
