Field Trips, Camps and Educational Outreach – Colorado Gives Day Campaign – part 3

Have you noticed lately that we seem to be “tethered to the cloud”? We rely on our e-gadgets on a daily basis, and sometimes to the extreme. Well, here at The Urban Farm we have a cure for this epidemic called Tetheritis Cloudis (ok, we made that up). A Field Trip at TUF is like a rejuvenating spa for the mind. We offer hands-on activities that are sure to keep everyone’s hands on an animal or on a shovel, instead of on the phone, and one’s mind on simpler things in life.Students from the Colorado Academy are mucking a sheep pen during a field trip

One of our wonderful partners is GOCO. Through funding from Go Outdoors Colorado, we are able to provide a piece of farm education to children in after-school programs such as Compass in Aurora, CO. 


TUF also offers Summer Camps where keeping one’s head in the cloud is acceptable as long as your feet are on the ground with the horses, pig or our other four legged creatures. At our Storybook Farm camp we believe that dreaming big is a must and fulfilling those dreams is possible at the Urban Ag and Ranch camp where children hold ducks and chickens, not phones.
