FINAL CAMP of 2020

October 30th 11-12:30pm-  Age 5 and younger Halloween Easter egg hunt (Parents must attend with kids and are responsible for their children the entire time)- $25 covers 1 parent and 2 kids or 3 total family members, $7/extra kiddo (venmo @Becky-Schmooke or cash upon arrival).  10 families only- register for 1 family NOT per attendee– please be respectful with social distancing- I believe kids ages 3 and up can wear masks and ask that you do your best to adhere to mask wearing- adults and 5yr old kids must wear a mask as I do know that is not an unreasonable ask.  There will be a set number of candy filled eggs for each family, please stick to that number only.  I also will have bags for you to use to collect eggs. I will be with the goats and chickens so you can start with the goats and chickens or come back as it works during the time.  I will be depending on parents to keep kids from messing with the items in the woods and respecting the treehouse rules as I won’t be out there to supervise.  The bathroom in BMK is available during the camp.  NOTE: Please drive down the hill and circle around and part facing up the driveway but do not place neighbor’s drive.  I hope to have a sign marking where the first car should park.  This allows people to leave early as needed because, well, kids hold their own schedules! I also hope to do story time with the goats for those interested!

MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL CAMPS- MASKS MUST STAY ABOVE NOSE AND CANNOT HAVE A VALVE.

 Camp will only run with 8 kids minimum so share with friends and neighbors! Refunds will be issued if camp doesn’t run and I will notify you the night before if there aren’t enough registrations. 

Kids get to be kids during this camp, playing in the treehouse, zip line, building forts, tackling the ninja course and taking goats on walks through the woods plus creating fun art work to take home (perfect grandparent gifts)! I’ll have some BMK bakery treats available for the kids (let me know of any allergies). Please bring water bottle and any additional snacks.  I lead the kids in games that sneak in lots of great educational tips and tricks, encourage creative play and pushing kids to try new things and build confidence.  They get to bond with the animals and learn about nature.  It’s a beautiful afternoon of no screens.

Parents: you are welcome to come as much as 30min early for pickup and bring younger siblings to play as well.   If you wish to stay the entire camp time with younger siblings, it is $20/ sibling under 5yr old.

Private camp for older kids:  Theatre/Creative writing and Nature Camp: $50 SELECT THEATRE TO REGISTER Camp will only run with 8 kids minimum so share with friends and neighbors! Refunds will be issued if camp doesn’t run.  AGES 10 and up 

Kids need to feel comfortable being goofy in front of others as they will be writing and preforming scenes.  We will be working on parts of language in fun ways through various games, stretching the creative brain while still having free time to create art, play with goats and chickens, treehouse fun, exploring nature and more!  Please bring water bottle and notebook/pen or pencil.

PRIVATE CAMPS:  Life is unpredictable and we are all finding our own level of comfort this fall.  If you have a group of classmates, friends, neighbors or homeschool learning pods, and would like to keep your contact to those kids only, you can schedule a private camp option below.  Camps must contain the equivalent of 8 registrations with a max of 12.  Ages 5 and up- kids must be comfortable wearing masks and using the restroom without assistance.   Camps may be scheduled during any time block of the day. Choose from one of the options below or contact me to customize a camp for your group! 2 hour long nature camps are available for $40/kid.

Currently all camps are outdoors only (inside access to bathroom available).  Rain alone will not result in cancelation of camp so please send kids with weather appropriate clothes.  I will open up some inside room for kids if needed- masks plus shields (I provide shields) will be worn inside. Want to send your child for free? Contact me about staying as a parent volunteer and your child gets to come for free!(319) 325-3464

Nailed It and Nature Camp: $75/Kid 3hr camp

$75/ Kid:  Kids will get to compete in a Nailed It! style competition by decorating a custom cookie.  There will be 3 levels of difficulty so kids will compete against others in their skill level.  I will also be rotating kids through so only a small number are decorating at a time- all decorating will occur outside on the BMK deck. Custom cookie designs by Vanilla Beans and Daydreams! Kids will also create art in the woods, take goats for a walk, build forts, play in the treehouse, play fun educational games with me that focus on engaging the creative brain and help with language arts skills. Bathrooms are provided inside BMK.  Water is available to refill water bottles.

 Art, Nature and Farm Camp.- $40/Kid 2hr camp

Kids get to be kids during this camp, playing in the treehouse, zip line, building forts, tackling the ninja course and taking goats on walks through the woods plus creating fun art work to take home (perfect grandparent gifts)! I’ll have some BMK bakery treats available for the kids (let me know of any allergies). Please bring water bottle and any additional snacks.  I lead the kids in games that sneak in lots of great educational tips and tricks, encourage creative play and pushing kids to try new things and build confidence.  They get to bond with the animals and learn about nature.  It’s a beautiful afternoon of no screens.

Read below for all of the details that you could ever possibly want.  I take the approach of over detailing everything since this is the strangest year yet for many of us.  It’s important to me to be transparent and communicate with you all as you are showing me such respect and support in trusting me to keep your child safe.  I don’t take that lightly.

Morning and afternoon sessions will be available depending on local school district’s online schedules.  Groups of 10 kids or more (10 families max) can schedule private 2hr camps for a time slot that works best for you.

With online schooling requiring more screen time than normal, I wanted to provide an opportunity for kids to enjoy nature, goats and chickens, art, time playing in the tree house and adventure playground with a small number of other families with a like minded approach to COVID safety.  Surfaces are disinfected after every camp and hand sanitizer is available throughout the property.  Only 10 kids will be able to sign up to keep exposure limited.  Kids will be required to wear masks unless seated in areas that are designated as 6ft apart to provide mask free chatting and snacking.  I will provide art supplies and materials for kids to create new games along with games and books in the tree house.  They will have access to the bathroom inside BMK.  I will help lead kids in activities and create science experiments like making traps using physics, learning different plant names, animal care, theatre games, debate and more- all dependent on who is at the camp and what the day brings.  My goal is to promote creativity and challenging kids to train the brain to see that there are always things to do and make no matter where you are.  Kids can bring books to read while relaxing in the hammocks, notebooks for writing, personal art projects or even school work.  Parents can use this time to get errands done without kids in tow, hang out and work on the BMK deck or in the woods or enjoy playing with zero obligations or pull to do work.

 Private camps can be scheduled as well for groups of friends/learning pods.  Kids can bring written work to share out loud to work on public speaking along with theatre centric games to build confidence. Email Becky to schedule. [email protected]
