WhatsOn May 25, 2015 by Debra Downey Ancaster News

The Ancaster Agricultural Society is inviting children to a “dang adorable” summer camp.

The week-long experience will focus on the importance of agriculture, rural life, farm animals, crafts and outdoor play.

Ancaster Fair general manager Tammy Quinn said the camp will be fun, different, educational and local for children ages five to 13.

“Our campers will have hands-on fun while playing and learning about baby farm animals and the environment, will make cool arts and crafts projects they can enter in the fair, play games and sports, learn to bake, sew a creature, meet community helpers and many, many, more fun-filled activities,” she said. “It’s going to be dang adorable.”

Camps run July 6-10, 13-17, 20-24, 27-31 and Aug. 10-14, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended care available from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The culmination of each camping week will feature a field trip on Fridays to locales like African Lion Safari, Safari Niagara, Twin Valley Zoo and Petting Farm and Ripley’s Aquarium.

The Ancaster Fair Summer Camp will be led by Mary-Lynne Howell, the former farm program director and part of the staff team at Tim Hortons’ Onondaga Farm in St.  George. Howell is also a local dairy farmer, a member of the Ancaster Agricultural Society and 4-H leader.

Quinn said the Ancaster Agricultural Society has a strategic planning committee, and a summer camp is one of the items highlighted to pursue.

“It was kismet,” Quinn said of the introduction of the summer camp. “We had a member who worked as a children’s camp program director who was available, so it was the right time, the right place and the right person.”

The Ancaster Fair Summer Camp can accommodate a maximum 50 campers each week. They will be divided into groups with a four-to-one camper/counsellor ratio.
