Ag Camp At Fairgrounds

The South Florida Fair will again offer its popular “ag-ucation” camp program for youth ages 8 to 12. The spring program will take place March 21-25, while the summer program will take place June 13-17.

During the five-day program, children will learn about the different aspects of South Florida’s agricultural community. Working with farm animals, harvesting a garden, learning about grooming and animal care, farm field trips and a visit to a dairy are just a few of the activities.

The cost is $175 per child for the weeklong program. It includes a daily morning and afternoon snack, bus transportation to field trips and all materials needed to facilitate the learning experience.

Participants will report to the South Florida Fairgrounds each morning at 8 a.m. and be picked up no later than 5 p.m. Space in the program is limited. For more info., call (561) 790-5229.
