In 2017, we took a look around and realized we had a great opportunity to utilize our grounds for more than just wild and crazy fun. So, we adopted a handful of friendly animals and opened up our gardens to allow children to learn and interact with nature in a different way. We hope that by taking a hands-on approach, campers will leave Hi-Ho feeling a little more connected with the world around them.
At Camp Hi-Ho, we have two gardens where we grow a variety of different fruits and vegetables. The kiddos can get their hands in the dirt, pick them straight from the vine, and share with others. We also added a butterfly garden this summer where the campers can go and see several different types of flowers and learn about the wildlife. We hope that we can educate campers on the process of growing food and the importance of good stewardship towards our planet.
Over the summer of 2017, we decided to adopt some farm animals. Campers have an opportunity to go into the pasture and interact with our farm crew. Listed below are the names (and types) of animals we have:
