Dig into summer farm fun with Youth Farm Camps by Seattle Tilth at 21 Acres. These theme-based week-long day camps are a great way to have fun while learning about the fascinating world of the garden.
Participants spend five days developing practical garden skills, exploring plants and discovering animals. They will learn about insects, vegetables, soil and worms while playing games, making art, reading stories, singing songs and running through the sprinklers.
Camp is offered for three sessions in July for youth ages seven to eleven, or entering grades two to five in fall, 2014. Dates are: Camp 1, July 7-11; Camp 2, July 14-18; and Camp 3 July 21-25. Hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and campers will need to provide their own lunch and snack.
Seattle Tilth’s children’s garden educators have many years of experience providing high quality, educational and fun camps for children and youth. The student to teacher ratio is 6:1 and the focus is on providing a positive, structured and peaceful outdoor learning environment. Many campers come back year after year and some have even become staff members. Fee is $290 per child or $240 for Seattle Tilth and 21 Acres members.
