Youth Camelid Camp

July 8-12, 9-1pm

At Double 8 Alpaca & Llama Farm Camp, kids have FUN! We combine learning and play in a safe, interactive outdoor environment. The campers will learn about daily farm life – from morning chores like feeding the animals, collecting eggs, grooming llamas and our sweet miniature pony, learning how to walk alpacas and llamas through an obstacle course to learning all about the fiber and crafts made from it.
