Food Love Farm Summer Camp – Registration OPEN!

2020 Camp Sessions: July 13-17 & July 20-24

Please note: Our 2020 Food Love Farm Camp will be modified to conform with local and state regulations on social distancing.  More details will be posted as we get closer to our camp dates.

The Food Love Farm Camp is the tastiest camp in town  This camp is designed to encourage children to feel and understand their connection to themselves, their community, the Earth, and the food they eat.  Throughout the week, kids will learn about food, farming, and the environment by engaging in activities related to our daily theme.  Campers will spend each morning helping with farm chores, harvesting produce, and preparing lunch together.  Each afternoon we will share a farm-fresh meal, followed by a nature-inspired craft or game.  This camp is kept small to encourage campers and staff to create a community-like environment and to ensure each child feels fully involved in daily farm life.  We hope that kids who attend camp will come home excited to share healthy recipes and habits for maintaining wellness, as well as feeling inspired to participate in our local food system and our community!
