Knitting is just one of the many arts based activities students practice at Camphill.

About

Hi! That title, right? So...now that you're here- Camphill Special School's Transition Program at Beaver Farm is looking for some help! We'll be shearing our sheep before the end of April. We're in need of some kind volunteers who will come in for a day or two or more, some time between 9:00-5:00.

Volunteers can work outdoors (weather permitting). You'll be skirting wool so come dressed for what could be a messy project. This activity involves pulling briars and other objects from the fleece so it can be sent out for professional washing. We'll show you how it's done.

If you're interested in crafts, fiber arts, or knitting, this could be a great way to gain a deeper appreciation for your materials!

This is a great opportunity for a group or team looking to work together. You'll have lots of time to talk, so bring along a friend!


The Transition Program at Beaver Farm is set on 56 acre livestock and farm bordering French Creek. Designed especially for eighteen to twenty-one year old students, Beaver Farm emphasizes learning skills, a work ethic, and social conduct necessary to become a contributing member of society.
