2019 Summer Camps (Dates announced in December 2018)

We empower kids to make better food choices for life-long good health through hands-on farm and cooking experiences.
Join us for three unique camp experiences in 2019.

Farm Camp
Become a Farmer for a week!
Kids will “work” in the garden by planting, harvesting, and digging in the dirt. They’ll learn what plants and animals need to grow, and what their bodies need, too. They also spend plenty of time interacting with our resident animals!

  • Farm campers will spend most of their time on the education part of our farm, interacting with our Camp Counselors and Agricultural Education teams.
  • They will also have hands on afternoon cooking sessions with one of our professional chefs. They will use our outdoor kitchen space to learn how to use food that they harvest to make tasty and healthy treats.
  • One afternoon of each camp week is reserved for campers to experience our outdoor pool and our zipline! This camp afternoon promises to be a highlight of each camp week!
  • Friday afternoon is reserved for a show back for parents/guests. The campers will present a Farmers Market for their guests and share their newfound love of farm and food.
