Have A Baja Moment! Flora Farms Summer Camp Opens in July
Summer camp is coming to Flora Farms.
Although best known for its organic produce and incredible farm-to-table dining experiences courtesy of Flora’s Field Kitchen, the gorgeous 10-acre property is adding summer fun to its roster of homey, healthy and environmentally conscious activities, with a quartet of 6 day sessions for children 6-12.
Located in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range, just outside of San Jose de Cabo, everyone’s favorite farm and community of culinary cottages is seeking to provide a safe and beautiful outdoor atmosphere in which kids can not only have room to run and play, but also nourish their minds by learning arts and crafts, cooking, gardening and yoga, and practicing self-reflection through daily journal writing.
It’s the first year the summer camp has been held at Flora Farms, and since all sessions will be bilingual, it’s a perfect fit for children of both locals and visitors.
There are four sessions scheduled this summer, beginning on July 2nd, 2013.
Session 1: July 2-7, Ages 6-8
Session 2: July 16-21, Ages 7-10
Session 3: July 30 – August 4, Ages 8-12
Session 4: August 6-11, Ages 10-12
This is the only camp of its kind in the area, and one of the reasons is that Flora Farms is something of a world unto itself, not only in terms of geography, but in its commitment to sustainability and environmental values. Situated outside the tourist centers of Los Cabos, the picturesque property features plenty of open space and a bucolic setting, albeit with access to modern facilities and services, as well as warm, welcoming and highly trained staff. There are a proportionately high number of instructors and guides for each camp session, ensuring kids get plenty of personal attention.
All sessions run from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and daily activities are scheduled to provide stimulation for mind, body and soul. Kids get to get dirty gardening and planting basil, wash off with runs through the sprinkler, plus play games and learn arts and crafts. What else? How about visits to the nearby ranch to allow children to interact with animals like goats, chicken and rabbits? Light lunches and snacks are always included, and there are also cooking classes on tap to teach valuable skills like pizza making and bread baking.
Each camp session concludes with an overnight sleepover that starts at 4 p.m. on Saturday. The final evening consists of a safe bonfire over which to cook hotdogs and toast s’mores, as well as an activities workshop, a shadow making show, and of course storytelling. Parents can pick up their kids at 10 a.m. Sunday, but will have to wait a year to drop them off again.
Tuition is $3500 pesos per child, plus $500 for the cost of materials ($333 U.S. total). For reservations or further information, visit www.flora-farms.com, email Lakshmi@flora-farms.com, or call (624) 132-4135.
