A Mind-Full of Magic and Medicine
A week-long summer camp for kids going into K-8th grade set on 2.8 acres just outside of Eugene. Through the FARM STEAM framework, campers interact with the environment, small animals, and technology while learning about the power of nature.
This Summer Break camp provides kindergarten through 8th grade-aged children the space to explore a range of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics activities on a small, permaculture-focused farm. Lead by a licensed teacher and located on a 2.8-acre farm on a peaceful edge of Eugene, Mind-Full Meadows FARM STEAM Camps offer something for everyone.
->A Mind-Full of Magic and Medicine includes ample opportunities to interact with the animals and nature of Mind-Full Meadows. We have chickens, including Silkies, rabbits, ducks, Muscovies, goats, and puppies. The framework of these fun-filled learning experiences is: Farming Practices Animal Care Responsible Choices Making Things Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics. This camp is a week filled with the power of potions, plant medicine, and poetry. From creating scroll carriers and organic medicinal salves to moon phase calendars and pixie palaces, this camp will immerse you in the power of the earth.
A Mind-Full of Magic and Medicine takes participants through the habits of rabbits, mastering plant parts, and those of insects, worms, and humans! We explore mindfulness as we calculate volume, learn about the strength of circles, and build trellises. Spells, chants and incantations can all have rhythm! Campers explore augmented reality (AR) through the use of Merge Cubes, and the application Galactic Explorer, as well as the human anatomy on the Virtuali-Tee. Rounding things out with some instruction in wildcrafting safety and local edible and medicinal plants, campers have many items they can enter into The Scientific Symposium and Casting Compendium!
Camps run from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. -> All materials provided. -> Student can use their own compatible tablet or smartphone if desired. (see details)
$200 for the full week, M-F. Camp exceeds 2020 Oregon Health Authority guidelines for school-aged summer day camps, offering open-air classrooms, plenty of space between learning campers, and "science screens" (face shields) available for all at camp, and used by all when indoors.
