Winter Enrichment Program at Auerfarm

Auerfarm’s Enrichment Program is a STEAM-based program that is designed to give children the opportunity to learn on the farm in a small group setting with Auerfarm educators. During this challenging time, we feel it is important for children to learn through hands-on experiences. Auerfarm is following strict guidelines to keep children safe while on the farm. (COVID-19 prevention plan attached)The program is for children entering K – 8th grade, while the Sprouts is for children entering PreK/K.
