Sign up for sheep camp!

SUNBURY — Sign-ups are now taking place for Sheep Camp at Owens Farm, located between Sunbury and Riverside.  Sheep Camp is for children ages 7 through 12, and runs Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during selected weeks over the summer.

Each child has their own sheep for the week, with which to learn  animal science,  halter training, washing, catching, tipping, health care management, and related skills. The sheep also take part in games and demonstrations.  

Each day includes wool crafts from shearing to dyeing, felting, spinning, weaving, knitting, or crochet. The sheep also take part in games and demonstrations.  

What's a summer day without Lamb Races,  Hide-'N-Go Sheep, Obstacle Courses,  Shepherd Charades, and other surprises?  For dates, rates, and availability visit www.owensfarm.com.
