Our Unique Garden to Fork Camp Experience

 

During this very unique hands-on Garden To Fork camp experience, campers will engage in organic gardening practices, herb cultivating, handiwork tasks around the garden, along with cooking/baking, art/crafting, and lots of outdoor active play!

 

Through these experiences, children will have the opportunity to learn where their food comes from and why eating fresh is best for their bodies and the environment, in a most fun and exciting way.

Children will learn to identify plants and herbs and their many uses.

Storytelling and activities that feed the imagination will also be incorporated into each day.

Our Garden to Fork Camp is the perfect opportunity to connect to nature, make new friends, and enjoy the summer break!
