Sierra Harvest will once again offer 2 weeks of farm fun and fresh fruits and veggies at their educational farm, the Food Love Farm! Each July, campers arrive at the farm ready to work, play, cook, and eat. This camp is designed to encourage children to understand their connection to themselves, their community, the earth, and the food they eat.
Throughout the week, kids learn about food, farming, and the environment by engaging in a variety of craft, cooking, and farming activities. Campers spend each morning helping with farm chores, harvesting produce, and preparing lunch together. Last summer, harvesting and preparing lunch for fellow campers on the ‘Kitchen Crew’ was voted favorite activity! Every afternoon we share our farm-fresh meal, followed by a nature-inspired craft or game. Often we close out the day sharing a book in the shade of the hops tipi. 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 farm 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!
The first session will take place July 13th-17th and the second session will happen July 20th – 24th. Scholarships may be available to families who qualify – contact Farmer Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here for more info!
