SEED TO MARKET CAMP

EARTH * WATER * HARVEST
CAMPS FOR KIDS AGES 5-7 & 8-11 

WEEK 1//JULY 8 - 12

EARTH

This camp is all about laying the groundwork for all things … Specifically, on the farm that’s the soil; with art, we will use earth based paints and brushes; in the woods, we will go tracking! This is a fantastic first camp of the series but can stand alone keeping kids engaged, thinking, and inspired to consider the value of a rich environment.

  • Art: earth paints, castings

  • Forest: tracking

  • Expert Visitor > TBA

WATER

We simply cannot have a summer camp without WATER, right? Given that it is an essential component in getting our seeds and plants to grow, we will learn all about irrigation and have fun with water all week!
