ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Since 1996, Rainbow Ridge Farm has welcomed guests to its bed and breakfast. But this year, they are offering summer farm camps.
Kids ages six to twelve get the chance to work on a farm and learn about animals and agriculture. They participate in doing farm chores such as milking and grooming the goats, feeding the pigs and calves, and also collecting chicken eggs and harvesting vegetables.
Co-owner Donna Murphy, says its a chance for kids to experience things that they normally wouldn't get at home.
"How many children do you know that have held a baby goat and had it nibble on their ear?That have held a fuzzy little baby chick and had it go peep peep peep against their chin? They get to crawl in there with the piggies and scratch a pig and watch it flop over on its side so that you can scratch it some more. They get chances here to do things that they're not going to get at home."
The farm camp runs from June until August Monday through Friday. If you are interested in signing up your child for the camp, visit www.rainbowridgefarmcamp.com.
