Dear School’s Out Camper Families,

Welcome to a fun-filled day at Gorman Heritage Farm's School’s Out Camp! We have planned enriching activities for your child including: animal/farm chores, seasonal crafts, healthy cooking activities, fun group games, an educational nature hike, and more! We hope to share with your child an appreciation and respect for the impact that the natural world has on his/her life and farm life as well as the impact that we have on the natural world.

Just a few reminders:

  • Drop off is at 9:00am and pick up is at 4:00pm for all camps. Please be prompt.

  • Please prepare your child for the weather. We will hike. Hats, gloves, multiple layers (including rain coats or ponchos) are highly recommended. Your child may leave these items in our Sunflower Room if they are not needed.

  • Appropriate footwear such as boots or sturdy tennis shoes are a must (no sandals, Keens, or crocs).

  • Please send a lunch, an afternoon snack, and water bottle with your child. Label all items with your child’s name.

  • We encourage you to pack a completely compostable and/or reusable lunch with your child.

  • If your child will be late or absent from camp or you need to reach your child or the camp staff during the day (in an emergency), please call the farm at (513) 563-6663.

  • If you have any questions, please feel free to ask any of the Gorman Heritage Farm staff. We want everyone to have a safe and memorable experience at the Farm!

We look forward to inspiring your child with curiosity and an appreciation for farming and nature through community building, farm education, and exploration of the outdoors.

Working with Animals

Programs at Gorman Heritage Farm are led by experienced and nationally recruited staff. Gorman Heritage Farm provides extensive staff training including first aid, CPR, holistic group management, child safety, and child abuse awareness and prevention. However, due to the active nature of our programs and by working closely with animals, unavoidable accidents potentially occur. Safe and appropriate behavior will be taught and emphasized during camp.

Please also reinforce the following farm etiquette at home with your camper:

  • Keep hands to yourself until invited by GHF staff or volunteer to greet an animal.

  • Never enter an animal pen unless accompanied by GHF staff or appropriate volunteer.

  • Never feed animals unless a GHF staff member says it is OK.

  • Respect animals by keeping voices low and acting calmly.

A parent or guardian of each child participating in Gorman Heritage Farm School’s Out Camp must agree to and sign the following statement:

The undersigned is aware that there are inherent risks involved when working with animals and participating in hands-on activities. In order to help promote the safest, most enjoyable experience for my child, I agree to discuss, enforce, and model the farm etiquette rules listed above with my camper.
