We are open for bookings and taking necessary precautions in response to COVID19
Let your kid(s) spend Spring Break at Spring Farm Camp with Angel and Jules for Others.
Get your kids out of the house and down to New Egypt to make some fun summer memories! At Angel and Jules for Others Farm Camp we hope to teach kids all there is to know about owning and running a farm. Campers don't need any farm background to attend, they can learn all they need to know with us this summer at Farm Camp. Please check out all the information below to learn more about Farm Camp!
Crafts at Farm Camp are all about nature and animals. So campers will be able to express their creativity while learning loads of fun things about the environment and all the fun critters who inhabit it.
Sitting around all day for the past couple of months must have been boring and left kids with so much energy that they are ready to explode. That's why at Farm Camp, campers can enjoy the outdoors and do fun things with new friends.
Campers will learn all about the animals we have on the farm, whether it be the anatomy of a goat or the different tacking equipment, Farm Camp is an amazing opportunity for kids to learn about what it takes to own animals and run a farm.
Campers will be immersed in Western Horsemanship this summer at Farm Camp. From grooming and tacking to barrel racing and trailblazing, Campers will learn a myriad of techniques from people who have been surrounded by horses for the majority of their lives. At farm camp, we hope to see Campers fall in love with horses the same way we did.
What would Farm Camp be without animals? Every day campers will spend time with the animals and learn the ins and outs of what it takes to own and care for animals. Farm Camp has a focus on horses, but Campers will learn and discuss all the animals that can be found on a farm and even get to meet some of them!
At Farm Camp, we hope to provide our campers with the opportunity to create memories and friendships that they will carry with them throughout their lives.
Please send campers with lunch Monday - Thursday. We ask that you do not send any products that contain or may contain peanuts or tree-nuts to keep our campers with allergies safe. Pizza Parties will be held on Fridays and will include two slices of pizza, a snack, and a beverage. A refillable water bottle should be sent with your camper every day; we have water refill stations available.
We recommend sending campers with a change of clothes daily so that they do not have to stay in their long riding pants all day long. Please send your child with a hat and plenty of sunscreen!
Please alert us of any medical conditions your child has and if they need medications. It is preferable that your child's medication is administered at home if possible, but if your child needs medication administered throughout the day please contact us to make special arrangements. Please send your child with EpiPens, rescue inhalers, or any other emergency medications; these emergency medications will be checked into the nurse's station each morning and returned to the child at the end of the day.
A Healthy Camp Begins at Home. In an effort to minimize illness at camp we ask that you check on the health of your camper daily beginning 14 days prior to camp start date. Parents and staff will be expected to monitor home temperature checks and will be asked to report any symptoms. We all want to stay safe and daily health screenings are an important part of that process. What happens outside of camp is just as important as what happens within it, in normal times, how people spend their evenings and weekends really wouldn’t matter. Now it does. Counselors and staff will need to be rigorously safe during their off-hours so that they don’t bring danger in. The same applies to campers’ families. Everyone will be in this together, so everyone will need to be able to trust one another’s actions outside to feel safe inside. Please be mindful of all social distancing guidelines and mandates.
Both campers and staff will be screened daily before entering the property. Upon arrival at camp, we will ask parents about symptoms and potential exposures. If anyone reports anything positive, or if they have a fever of 100.4 or higher, they will not be allowed on the property. We will adhere to the same rules as school, children need to be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to camp. If anyone believes that someone they are living with is ill or has been exposed, please keep your camper home.
How can camp operate with social distancing? Minimize the spread of germs! Guidance from the CDC and American Camp Association recommends not to mix camper groups. To comply with best practices, this summer each camper group will only interact with their group. Each group will be considered a family and will stay together for the entirety of their time here. Just as campers are close to the people they live with at home, camper group family members will not require social distancing. The Health Department recognizes that campers in a group can not/will not stay six feet apart at all times. Therefore, each group will travel together, take bathroom breaks together, and go to activities together. This group of campers will not social distance from each other.
It is all about minimizing risk and we intend to take every step necessary to do so.
Farm camp will be completely outdoors, whether it be riding or arts and crafts activities. On rainy days riding activities will take place in our large indoor arena that is open on both sides of the building; campers are safe from the rain and still maintaining CDC guidelines.
Parents are asked to provide their children with lunch Monday through Thursday. Pizza parties will be held on Fridays, it will include two slices of pizza, a beverage, and a snack. Please send a refillable water bottle every day to keep your camper hydrated. Lunch periods will be half an hour long and staggered to keep the two groups separated. The lunch area will be sanitized during the switching of the two groups.
We ask that parents do the first coat of sunscreen at home and send their child with a bottle apply throughout the day, preferably a spray sunscreen. Spray sunscreen makes it easier for camp leaders to help those that need assistance in reapplying sunscreen and to allow for campers to quickly apply in between activities or as needed.
We have a Licensed Nurse on staff, she is CPR certified and ready to help keep campers happy and healthy. When evaluating campers, she will wear proper PPE and take necessary precautions with other campers. A designated "quarantine space'" available for any camper with a fever awaiting parent pick up. If a parent is called to pick up a camper, the parent, or approved emergency contact, must pick up the camper.
Our goal is to keep our Camp Coconuts families as informed as possible while remaining in compliance
with various privacy laws. While those privacy laws prohibit us from providing detailed information
about any specific individual(s), we intend to share generalized communications about any confirmed
cases of Covid-19 among our staff or campers.
The CDC reported that this is a very rare and treatable syndrome.15 children under the age 15 in the U.S. have died of Covid-19 since February compared to about 200 who died of the flu and pneumonia. Children represent 0.02% of those affected.
Traffic will be controlled in order to accommodate camper drop and temperature check upon arrival of campers. Parents will be required to stay in the car when dropping campers off. For pickup, please have your ID ready and if someone else is picking up your child or if you are carpooling please make sure you also have the predetermined code(s) for the camper(s) you are getting.
It is expected that your camper be picked up during the designated pick up time. If you are unable to pick up your camper, aftercare fees will apply, $20 per hour. Please try and call or text ahead if you know you will be unable to get your camper on time in order for us to maintain proper social distancing of all campers that require aftercare.
We would love for you to stop in and visit us! If you would like to visit camp before signing up please just reach out to us to find a date and time that works best for you and your camper! We ask that you make an appointment so that we can maintain proper COVID-19 guidelines.
