Summer Camp Micro-Seasons

2017 camp registration will begin later this year. Sign up for our email newsletter to be notified when camp registration opens!

Each season (summer, fall, winter, and spring) is made up of many micro-seasons. Farm Camp’s micro-seasons explore the constant changes happening around the farm and also highlight different parts of agriculture and our food system. Each week of camp has new activities and adventures that explore these different themes. Check them out!
