ART CAMPS

    2015 marks the third year of Art Camp at Little Lost Creek, and I am thrilled to share that campers from last year report having had a blast! The groups were small, as planned, and many of the kids knew each other, making for a comfortable beginning of the week. Besides the very fun art work that was created, everyone enjoyed drawing and herding the alpacas, and playing with Pete and Pippen the goats, and of course, Chester-the-dog.

Come join in the fun of a small art camp with a lot of one-on-one attention to your work. We will explore the farm, the animals, the ecology of the woods, and much more.

For more details, click on the Art Camp link at left for more specific details.

Afternoons or Evenings at the Mad Felters!

Come and enjoy a relaxed workshop on wet or dry felting (or both) and bring home something you can delight in having made.

Build your own felting party – we can work out days and times that work for you and your friends. I’ll provide all of the materials, instruction, plus goodies to eat and drink. Most parties run 2- 2 ½ hours. Just come ready for fun!

$20 per partier

Pa. Farm Show

We are very proud of our four 4-H kids that competed in the Potato Judging at the Pa. Farm Show. Grace’s A Team finished in third place, while Naomi, Annabelle and Jessica’s B Team finished fourth in their very first year in the competition. Individually, Grace finished second overall (out of 56), just a half point out of first. (We are thinking she may have a potential career with the USDA.) Jessica tied for seventh overall. It was a great showing and everyone had a fun time. Here are some of the photos of them competing.
