Kids camp to explore heritage farming

Kids will explore local agriculture in the 4-H Farm to Fork Day Camp in Haywood County held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 31 to Aug. 2.

The Farm Bureau is sponsoring the camp for children ages six to 12. The theme this year is “Heritage Farming in Appalachia.”

Day campers will complete hands-on activities to learn about their food and will explore local farms in the area, including the historical farm near Cherokee in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There also will be activities such as making ice cream, Appalachian storytelling and traditional Appalachian crafts.

The cost for the camp is $35, which includes all materials and snacks.
