GARDEN TO FORK

Summer Camp

 

PROGRAM INFO

During this unique six week “Garden to Fork” Camp, children ages 3-12 will meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9am – 1pm to make new friends and learn where their food comes from and why eating fresh is best for their bodies and the environment, too! Camp begins Tuesday, July 9th and ends Thursday, August 15th. Children can attend any or all weeks. We invite children to join us in our hands-on camp to experience and take part in organic gardening, herb cultivating, doing handiwork tasks around the garden, cooking/baking, art/crafting, and lots of outdoor active play. Storytelling will also be incorporated into the day. Children will learn to identify plants and herbs and their many uses. It’s a perfect opportunity for children to connect to nature.
