Rainbow Ridge Farms
We are looking forward to our fifth year of Rainbow Ridge Farm School! Every week will be a celebration of farm-fresh food, the animals in our care, creative crafting, and so much more! Our school is for children ages 7-12, and this year we have added 2 weeks for kids ages 12-15 in order to accommodate requests for older participation.
As many of our tasks are hands-on, it is necessary that the children come in clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. Proper footwear is essential too, so please send your child with shoes that can be comfortable on hot days as well as being suitable for farm work -- closed toed shoes only! Flip-flops and animal hooves don’t mix. Part of the day may be spent cooling off in water games and play, please send your child with a swimsuit and towel plus a change of clothes.
Like all farmers, we will get pretty hungry and thirsty as we go about our daily chores; please send your child with a hearty nutritious lunch, a snack for mid-morning, as well as a water bottle clearly labeled with your child’s name.
The enrollment form, a waiver, and a physician form that we ask you to fill out for each child attending the program is essential information that we need to have on file before school begins. No child may attend school without these forms having been signed by the child’s healthcare provider and parent/guardian. Also, to ensure your child’s placement in the camp, all balances are due 2 weeks prior to their session. If you child is enrolled for the entire season, a payment schedule can be worked out. Please send all forms and your balance due to:
Rainbow Ridge Farms, LLC
N5732 Hauser Rd
Onalaska, WI 54650
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We look forward to seeing your child on the farm!
