Field-to-Fork Day Camp for Kids

Focusing on future farmers with a four day Summer intensive

Monday, June 10, 2019 through Thursday, June 13, 2019

9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Ages 8-12

$450 per session

The main objective of this camp will be to provide local kids with a holistic picture of farm life in Virginia. This four day session will be offered to a group of 8-12 year old campers, and through a hands-on curriculum focusing on animal care, cheesemaking, and the culinary arts, will strive to provide a truly field-to-fork experience.

Gail Hobbs-Page and Eliza Leineweber Lathrop have developed an on-farm curriculum with emphasis on food as it relates to sustainability, science, and nature. Through guided activities such as animal care, cheesemaking, vegetable harvesting, foraging, and cooking with ingredients from the farm, the objective will be to teach campers invaluable skills while also encouraging mindfulness and giving each person a sense of their role in the local food system.

Snacks & lunch will be provided each day. Transportation will need to be arranged by each parent.
