Meet the Teacher!
Melanie Delage

Hello, and welcome to the Kesicke Farm Summer Camp! I’m Mrs. Delage, but you can call me Mrs. D  if you’d like! I am very excited to meet all of you and explore the farm together! During your week at camp we will learn all about the farm, pitch in and do farm chores, have special guests, play games, do arts and crafts, and have lots of fun!           

 I bring to the farm plenty of experience in child development, I owned and operated my own daycare for many years, earning my license through the New York State Office of Children and Family Services SUNY program. I work in the Red Hook Central School District as a classroom aide, and I am a proud mother of two teenage boys! I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy gardening, baking, reading, painting, arts and crafts, and working with children!    Type your paragraph here.


The farm camp introduces young children to the excitement of farm animals and plants through picturesque literature and engaging activities.  Each day integrates a focus animal/area including cow, pigs, goats, sheep, donkeys, chickens, rabbits, and Kesicke Farms specialty-Sweet Corn!  The children will engage in real life farm work by interacting with the animals, collecting eggs, and more.  Hands-on activities are guaranteed to be an enchanting way for young children to learn about farm animals.  On the last day, each child will bring home pictures that we took during the week.
