Zenger Farm Nature Based Day Camps (1st-10th Grade)

Would you like to meet a chicken, discover where a frog makes its home, watch wild birds build their nests? Each day at Farm Camp, we adventure around to care for the plants and critters that live here. We taste farm-fresh fruits + veggies we’ve grown. We play games, sing songs — then we’ll grab our boots and head down to the wetland to see what the dragonflies and tadpoles are up to. Get ready to play outside!

9th Grade Counts (8th Grade ONLY)

Students will attend a simulated high school experience. Students will rotate through classes and work to familiarize themselves with the high school campus, staff and peers. Certified DDHS instructors will teach students skills to better prepare themselves for 9th Grade; they will go on tours of the campus, meet staff and support people around campus, work on projects similar to what they will see in high school, and learn the expectations for success in high school. At the end of the program, the goal is for students to feel confident and have the tools necessary to make their 9th grade year a success.
