    Schumacher Farm will once again be offering a kids' camp series this year, called Summer Fun at the Farm for grades 1-6. Youngsters will get to experience what life was like on a farm in Wisconsin in the 1920s and 30s. They will have the opportunity to enjoy stories, crafts, games, food, music, and activities from that period in time. The kids will love going on a hayride and prairie scavenger hunt, making toys, playing Tug of War, and sampling homemade ice cream, plus many more engaging activities. Camp will run from June 25, 26, and 27. If you are interested in signing your child(ren) up, please fill out and mail registration form by June 15th.
