Farm Camp – Summer 2016

Schmaling is very excited to be hosting FARM CAMP again this summer!

This engaging and educational program is ran by the Whiteside County Farm Bureau for children entering 1st-5th grade.  Each day will begin at the library. Kids will board a bus and head out on that day’s farm field trip. Campers will then return to the library where they will participate in hands-on Agriculture in the Classroom activities.

The fee for this camp is $15 for one child, or $10 per child when registering more than one sibling.

Camp will be from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Registration deadline is one week prior to the start of camp.

*Update: As of 5-26-16 there are only three more openings available, so please act soon if you are interested in having your children attend.

Register and pay at the library or print off a form at the link below to mail in your registration and payment –
