Summer Camp 2021

Join us each week as we dive into nature on our unique urban farm. With 13 acres of agricultural land, we'll spend time learning about our food systems and the importance of our environment and world around us. Each week we will engage in fun activities, meet new friends, and taste food directly from where it's grown! This year, alongside our traditional farm camp, we will be offering specialty camps focused in cooking, art and science.


Please note the following:

With our updated covid-19 regulations each camp has the capacity for 16 campers, 2 camp counselors, 1 CIT and 1 Intern. Masks are required for all campers and staff while on the property with the exception of eating lunch and phsyical activity in which case social distancing practicing will be implemented. A pre-screening process is required at drop off each morning and a similar process is implemented for staff. Please read through our Covid-19 Camp Guidelines for more details.
