Come explore the garden and farm with us! Our camp days include harvesting, making garden snacks, singing, storytelling, garden caretaking, garden crafts, and exploration of the natural world. Each day has a theme (past examples: Bugs, or Seeds, or Birds). This camp serves 24 campers with a 1:6 ratio of counselors to campers, allowing us to tailor camp activities to the ages and interests of our campers. We offer a MWF program and a TTh program. The camps offer the same curriculum so please register for either the MWF program or the TTh program, not both. This year we do offer one M-F session for one week (Session 4). After-care (1:00-3:00) available for all sessions (limited number of spaces).

Come explore, harvest, prepare and enjoy fresh food from the farm, hike, create garden crafts, art and music, play games, and form new friendships! Each day has a theme (past examples: Bug Day, Solar Energy Day, Chickens & Eggs Day) and each day begins with farm chores (Chickens, Fresh Fruit Popsicle-making, Farm Update, and Weather Report) and ends with storytelling under the walnut tree. The last Friday afternoon of each session, families join us for a kid-harvested Farmer’s Market Party. Each session serves 32 campers with a 1:8 ratio of instructors to campers. After-care (3:00-5:00) available for all sessions (limited number of spaces).

This is an exciting opportunity for capable and fun-loving youth aged 12-14, who enjoy working with children, to take on leadership roles at our Garden Sprouts Summer Camp! OWLS (Outdoor Wonderful Leaders at Summer camp) will assist the Garden Sprouts counselors and directors in making camp a nurturing and joyful learning experience for our 4-6 year old campers. Duties include helping set up in the morning, supporting the counselors while they lead the day’s activities, buddying up with Sprouts who need extra assistance at snack and lunchtime, participating in songs and games, holding chickens, and being a role model for our littlest campers. This program is designed for young teens to participate in a camp experience while developing their leadership skills. No previous experience working with children is necessary.
