2017 Camp Sessions: July 10-14 & July 17-21
The Food Love Project Camp is the tastiest camp in town! Daily sessions run from 9AM-1PM, with each day having its own unique theme around food and farming. The size of the program is kept small to insure that each child gets to explore his or her own interests and take on farm responsibilities. FLP camp is open to kids ages 6 to 11! Watch a video of camp here.
What to expect at camp
During the week, campers will choose a “farm name” and a “farm job” that they are responsible for. For instance, a camper who has decided to call herself “Radish” for the week may have the task of collecting eggs first thing in the morning.
We will be planting seeds, harvesting vegetables and flowers, seed saving, feeding chickens, taste testing and cooking fresh foods, searching for and identifying bugs and reptiles, creating art projects on the farm, photography, running a mock farmer’s market and more!
Each day will have a specific theme, but there is also underlying structure to how each day goes. The experience is designed to give campers an idea of what it takes to have a garden or farm, while at the same time encouraging their creativity and ownership of the space. The group size is intentionally kept small to make sure that each camper is fully involved every day.
Each camper should bring a water bottle, sunscreen, a hat, a bathing suit (or clothes that can get wet) and a bag lunch. We will provide snack, water and fun!
Camp runs from 9AM-1PM each day, and the cost is $205 – $225 per camper (with early bird discounts). Partial and full scholarships are available first come first serve. There is also an “a la carte” option of coming for just the day for $45. Camp is open to kids ages 6 -11.
