  • Garden Makers Workshop: Create, paint, shape, grow and discover your beautiful garden!

    For ages: 7-12; Two sessions offered, June 24th-28th and July 15th-19th.

    Calling all artists! Unleash your creativity with Garden Makers Workshop. During this summer camp, young artists will build inspired projects that make growing food fun and help create beautiful gardens.

    In this week-long camp we’ll use the natural environment as our muse and farmland as our inspiration. If you’re an aspiring artist or gardener, this camp is for you!





    This is a crafty week for crafty kids:

         – Polish up your sketching skills! Put on your “scientist hat” to learn how plants work and create your own field studies drawn from plants on the farm.
         – What’s Hügelkultur? Do you grow lasagna in a lasagna garden? Tap into your curiosity and learn new gardening techniques that make plants, animals and people jump for joy at how easy gardening can be.
         – Create crafts such as beeswax candles, papier-mâché garden art, pressed flowers from the farm, plant sculptures, natural wind chimes and so much more. You won’t go home empty-handed.
         – Embrace our mantra of recycle and reuse by making a crazy shoe planter that gives old shoes a beautiful second life.
         – Bugs need love, too! Build hotels for hard-working beneficial bug buddies that help keep our gardens happy and healthy.
         – Learn new painting techniques—with plants! Use nature’s paintbrushes to bring your creative eye to new art pieces.


    21 Acres is a safe, healthy, and packed-with-fun place for young adventurers to learn about a local, regenerative farm. We use sustainable practices without using any nasty chemicals—the perfect setting for an amazing summer experience that’s truly inspiring for kids. During our summer camps, children will explore a variety of wildlife, farm life, crafts, adventures, experiments and games on a real working farm. All summer camps will include:

    Winged Wednesdays—Ever wanted to meet an owl or hold a hawk? Meet John the Falconer to get up-close-and-personal with raptors on Wednesday. After learning more about our feathery friends, you will be ready to build your very own bird house here at the farm.
    Digging in the Dirt—At our summer camps, we love to get dirty! Campers have plenty of supervised opportunities to run, explore, play, and dig in the rich farm soil. Get a real appreciation for what’s just below your feet as you play in the muddy earth. You won’t come home with clean clothes.
    Meet the Animals—Our animals play an important role at the 21 Acres farm. Come meet Lucky & Skippy, our friendly goats, as well as our chickens (and one confused duck!), rabbits, worms and more.
    Walking Field Trips—The area is home to many local farms and experiences we want to share with our campers! Walk with us to the Sammamish River, Tonnemaker’s Farm Stand and other local farms to explore how other people grow food.
    Special Guests—Each week, we will bring experts out to speak about what they know best— salmon scientists, our beekeeper, local chefs, musicians and more.
    Oooh! Smoothies!—The seasonal fruit on our farm is delicious! Pick your own natural fruit ingredients and try experimenting with new flavor combinations.
    Make & Take—We love building things with our own hands, from bug houses to flower-pressing, planters to papier-mâché creations and more. While crafts vary from week to week, campers will always have something to take home and proudly share with friends and family.
    Friday Pizza Party—Who doesn’t love pizza? Help harvest ingredients, prepare, and cook pizzas in our wood-fired oven every Friday. This pizza party caps off each and every week of camp.

    We believe that kids can help heal the planet. 21 Acres is an inspiring place to learn about better farming practices through reducing greenhouse gas emissions, practicing no-till methods, eliminating nasty chemicals and working with Mother Nature as our ally. The 21 Acres Farm, and our network of sustainable and regenerative farms, means hope for the future—a future in which campers will take an active role. We’re excited to learn together about how regenerative farming is a solution to climate change.
