2021 summer camp week 2

July 12- 16: Urban Farmer

The second week of the camp was a 4-day fun-filled event. We had almost double the number of campers than last week. This week felt pretty calm and easy as we were better prepared.

Our routine was similar to the first week including introductions, games, chicken time, garden education, cooking, and sharing meals.

Some of the highlights of this week were:

  • Painting tote bags
  • Learning about bees and trying on the beekeeper's suit
  • Harvesting squash for lunch
  • Kneading pizza dough and making customized pizzas
  • Playing with the chickens
  • Learning about soil composting through a guest session by our friend, Farmer Hallie. 
  • Making popsicles and ice-creams (everyone loved the raspberry sorbet), and more

Each week we learn new things from these young, enthusiastic youth and try to think of innovative ways to engage them. It fills our hearts with joy to experience this time with them.

Thank you to all our community members, youth and families, volunteers, and staff who supported us through the week.
