NOMAD Farms Summer Camp 2023

conservation, caretaking, collaboration, composting, &
calisthenics for ages 6-12 #thisisfarmcamp

Campers, get ready for the most rewarding week of your short lives! Prepare to sweat, get dirty, and slog it out while you contribute to the work of a local producer of clean food in the Triad! Learn how NOMAD Farms works with nature to produce clean beef, pork, chicken, rabbit, and turkey. Befriend NOMAD animals: feed, water, assist in pasture rotation, collect eggs, and protect from predators. Tend the farm garden: plant seeds, cultivate compost, identify local species of trees and help expand forest areas. Collect and study wild herbs. Create farm-inspired art and practice your own storytelling. Make forts and build character. Play old-fashioned games. Keep a field journal and practice asking questions, generating ideas, and solving problems. Explore this museum of God’s creation and understand your role in the stewardship of it.

Mark Nicholson is lead-caretaker of our livestock and land. As Director of NOMAD’s staff and Manager of Sales, his degrees are in Psychology (UNC-Chapel Hill) and Leadership (MA, Columbia International University). Dana Nicholson is Engineer of NOMAD Farms camp curriculum with a BA in Education (UNC-Chapel Hill) and an MA in Education (Wake Forest University). These two bring their life experiences to cultivate love for learning and regenerative farming!
