Sprout Camp Sessions
MOMMY / TODDLER "SPROUT" DAY CAMP
This is the perfect opportunity to introduce toddlers to farm life. Toddlers will learn how to hold and touch baby animals, the life cycle of chickens, animal and plant needs.

Proof of Identity (POI) for children. The Code of Virginia section 63.1-196.3 requires all children under the age of 13 when first enrolled in a Virginia school or camp to present proof of identity and age. As of January 2017, The Red Barn Farm requires all parents to present their child's original POI on their first day of camp. Staff will verify each child's POI and immediately return the document to the child’s family before leaving check-in on the first day of camp.
The Code of Virginia states that “Proof of identity means a certified copy of a birth certificate or other reliable proof of the child’s identity and age.” The following documents are acceptable forms of reliable proof:
- Certified copy of a birth certificate
- Birth registration card
- Notification of birth (hospital, physician, or midwife record)
- Copy of placement agreement or entrustment agreement from a child placing agency (foster care and adoption agencies)
- Record from a public school in Virginia
- Certification by a principal or his designee of a public school in the U.S. that a certified copy of the child’s birth record was previously presented
- Copy of the conferring temporary legal custody or entrustment agreement of a child to an independent foster parent. (identification card issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles DMV)
