2017 Summer Programs
Dalby Farm Pre-K Encounter
Description: The Dalby Farm Pre-K Encounter summer learning program offers an educational and fun first chance for kids to meet and learn about the many animals on a fully functioning farm. Most children of three or four have very little experience interacting with animals – except for maybe the family pet! But for young kids, these kinds of interactions are what lay the foundations for them to be conscientious participants in our global ecosystem. Children that have positive experiences with animals early in life are more likely to develop respect and understanding for the many creatures that rely on human caretakers (and that people rely on themselves). 2017 Program Dates! 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday June 12th, 14th, 16th 2017 Register here
‘The Dalby Farm Experience’
Description: The Dalby Farm ‘Experience’ is an interactive summer learning program for children entering K-8th grade. Our farm provides an ideal environment for children to ‘experience’ learning through hands-on farm and nature activities, games and crafts. The Experience is offered to children entering grades K-8 . The program is divided into 3 groups, by grade levels, and is offered, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday. We offer extended day care, please ask about it! Register here

Over the years we have heard from countless parents who wish they could have an excuse to spend time at Dalby Farm. Although we did begin Open Farm Days last year, we wanted to find more ways to give meaningful experiences not just to the children of our community, but to the adults as well. What better way to do that than offer some outdoor fitness programs?
We have teamed up with a couple fitness professionals with one goal: To get you outside, to get you active, and to get you feeling great. A small portion of the proceeds will go directly back to the rare animals on our farm, so everybody benefits!
