Hello, and welcome back to our Busy Bee Day Camp recap! We hope you enjoyed part one of our adventure, which took us to The Bead Farm, the Naborhood Bakery, Georgell Doll Shop and LuLu’s Boutique. Our adventure now continues with stops 5-8. Ready? Let’s hop to it!
Keeping up with the whimsical fun had at Stop #3, fairy gardens and gnome homes are assembled at this special stop.
First, the kids are invited to step inside this lovely store and pick out a butterfly, a fairy, or a gnome figurine to live in the succulent garden they'll create. There are many beautiful choices on display to choose from.
Once the gardens are designed, it’s off to Stop #6, where some larger creatures can be found.
Yeehaw! Time for some hands-on fun with a variety of loving rescue animals. The good-hearted people of The Farm have taken in animals from all around the state, most of whom have been abused, and have given them a new lease on life. As an added treat, those animals are occasionally brought to Gardner Village to meet their adoring fans. (They rotate the animals out so they don’t get overwhelmed by all of the fun being had on location.)
...to petting young lambs and sitting atop a friendly donkey, there is much for the children to see and do at The Farm during camp.
Giddy up! It’s time to move on to Spoiled Rotten, where faces will light up with the activity that awaits.
With a complete book of choices, your child can have his or her face transformed into just about anything they can dream up at this face-painting stop.
While children are waiting for their turn in the face-painting seat, they’re invited inside the store to cool off and enjoy story time, singing and dancing. It’s a great way to beat the heat and have some fun!
Once the cute, little faces are made up, it’s off to the sweetest stop on our camp tour.
Yum! Talk about ending on a sweet note! At this stop, kiddos learn about making salt water taffy and are even taught to pull their own.
Weellll... you may find that there is more tasting than pulling, and that's okay. LOL
Your young ones will be all smiles after this sugary sweet camp stop. And your family will love the goodies they bring home to share. Mmmm... mmmm... good!Camp Buzz
Yes, this is a one-day camp your busy bees will not forget. There’s much to see, do and taste on this happy Gardner Village adventure. To sum things up, your campers will come home with a beaded piece (either a bracelet or a keychain); fairy wings, fairy dust, and a fairy-kiss wand; a pretty, painted birdhouse; a fairy/succulent garden or gnome home; a sweet, painted face; a bag full of special treats, including taffy and chocolate-dipped delights; memories of time spent with adorable rescue animals at The Farm; and a new tote bag and keychain keepsake. Not to mention happy times with new friends and awesome experience they can elaborate on when asked the notorious question, 'What did you do on your summer break?'
As a friendly reminder, camp runs every Tuesday from through August 11. You have two time-slot options. You can either come from 10:30 to 2:30 or from 11:30 to 3:30. Either way, you’ll meet at The Bead Farm and they will guide you and your young camper through each of the happy stops from there. (For a look inside stops 1-4, check out this post.) Camp is $40/ camper. Parents aren't charged but are asked to stay with their campers throughout the experience.
Thanks! We can’t wait to see you and your camper(s) buzzin' around The Village soon!
