After a long hiatus due to the COVID_19 pandemic, Waupoos was so excited to
welcome three families to stay at the farm this week. It's been over a year
since we have been able to recieve visitors, and so we were all thrilled!
We have plenty of fun activities for campers this year, and week one was no exception.
As a great start to the day, every morning we got together as a group to enjoy coffee
and muffins after Chapel. This week, we painted rocks, had a waterfight, made popcorn
holders, held a scavenger hunt, took a tractor ride, and more. With new activities
every day, it's impossible to be bored here.
Although things here at the farm are quickly progressing back to normal, we've
had to put a lot of new measures in place to ensure that our facilities remain
clean and safe. This includes disinfecting commonly touched areas, hosting all of
our activities and masses outdoors, and doing a thorough cleaning of each cabin
after campers pack up. These precautions make sure we're able to stay open
throughout the summer.
We've also been focusing a lot of our attention on preparing cottages for the campers' arrival.
We've moved around furniture, hung paintings, gotten new sheets, fixed some plumbing issues, and
at the moment we're installing new cabinets in cabin 5 (our Paris themed cabin). With campers
finally coming back to Waupoos, we want to make sure that everything is beautiful.
This year we have quite a few baby animals around the farm, which the kids love.
One of our rabbits gave birth to ten adorable bunnies. We also have two lambs that are
only four months old. Even though they're so young, the lambs are already huge, and
growing more every day. As the summer goes on, our goal is to continue to have families
come stay with us in a fun, safe environment where both parents and kids can relax. With
our first week almost finished, we feel great about the rest of our year!
