School Field Trips

 

Bring your students to our working farm to learn about resilient agriculture. From September to April, we offer age-appropriate, multidisciplinary programs for students from first grade through high school. Students and teachers learn about agriculture firsthand on a working farm, including everything from food cycles to agricultural business. There is something for any class to learn at Blackwood! We offer 1-, 2- and 3- hour specialized programs for every classroom, including TEKS relevant programming.

School Land Experiences

 

Bring your class to Blackwood for an overnight stay. We offer weeklong school programs for public, private, and homeschooled students, middle school through high school. See the farm in action for a week or more, shadow the farmer, and choose customized programming to meet your lesson plan needs. During this experience, students can expect to immerse themselves in life on our farm. They connect with nature, the gardens, and our animals. They discover the source of their food and what it takes to care for the land from which it comes.

Camps

Send your child to Blackwood Camp! We offer a variety of camps for ages 3 to 18 during the summer and fall.

During our Summer Nature Camp, campers ages 8 to 14 enjoy a week-long outdoor experience exploring nature.

For ages 5 – 7, we offer Camp Little Feet, an overnight bonding experience for a parent and child pair during the fall. We also offer Camp Little Green Feet in the fall, a day camp experience for a parent and child. These fall camps strive to introduce young children to seasonal and regional foods, and explore sustainable food systems.

Whichever camp you choose, your child is sure to have the time of their life!
