Week 1:  June 15-19 Grow it, Cook it, Eat it

Learn how to grow and cook your own food!  Campers will learn the basics of gardening: tilling soil, planting seeds, and watering.  Most importantly, kids will harvest, clean and prepare garden foods as they become mini-chefs, learning basic cooking skills in our teaching kitchen.  This is truly a seed to table camp!

 
Week 2: June 22-26 Mad Science
Become a scientist in our outdoor garden lab!  A garden is science come to life!  The garden is perfect for observing ecology, animal biology, interdependence, and plant science.  Our mini-scientists will find potential answers to their scientific inquiries as they explore and observe SEEDS’ two acres of urban garden land. 
 
Week 3: July 6-10 Animals of the Garden
Learn what crawls, wriggles, and skitters in the garden. Which bugs are pests and which are beneficial? Earn a “Chicken Handler’s Certificate”  as campers learn about our lovely lady chickens and how to care for them.
 
Week 4: July 13-17  Garden Artist
Make nature prints, fairy houses, garden sculptures and more in this camp designed to tap into campers creativity using natural materials, found objects, and the inspiration of our beautiful garden!
 
Week 5:  July 27-31  Pollination Station
A continuation of “animals of the garden” where we focus on the importance of bees, bats, and butterflies in our garden ecosystem.  We will also have a look at our live demonstration beehive and participate in a very scientific honey taste test.  
 
Week 6: August 3-7  Grow it, Cook it, Eat it:
Campers take their chef skills one step further as we invite guest chef’s from all over the world to lead kids in cooking lessons that use the amazing food children have been growing all summer.
