It is the middle of September and all the summer camp activities of 2021 have now come to a close—giving us the opportunity and time to reflect about what an amazing summer it was. After over a year of virtual programming we were beyond grateful that 2021 in-person summer camp programs got approved. There were some changes from our past camps, however, regardless of these changes we came together, tried new things, and had an amazing time exploring, learning, and supporting each other!
Despite the challenges of this year’s camp season, we were able to host and fill 11 different camps- including 3 new themes! From catching an 8lb bass in Tollgate Pond to walking a goat through the forest—each week of camp was a new and exciting adventure thanks to you all!
Of course, we also couldn’t have done it without our “camp counselors” which because of the last-minute nature of the camp, was made up of all Tollgate Locals including the Farm Director, Camp Coordinator, Educational Coordinator, Assistant Educational Coordinator, Assistant Camp Coordinator, 4-H Program Coordinator, Horse Camp Coordinator, Garden Education Coordinator and more– all wearing many hats to get everything done.
This has been a summer to remember and we will forever cherish the wonderful memories and friendships that were made this past summer. We hope that your camper(s) will too!
We wouldn’t be MSU Tollgate Farm without all of you—Keep on exploring!
From all of us at MSU Tollgate Farm, Thank you!
