Ages 8-11 Camps

Camp Honey (for kids currently in 3rd-5th grades)

Let’s talk about pollinators this Spring! Join us as we explore the Outback at WWU, looking for signs of Spring and pollinator habitats including the bee hives located on the south end of the farm. In addition to planting, harvesting, cooking and eating some delicious lunches, our special focus will be on learning about the important role that bees and other pollinators play in the garden.  And the buzz is that at least a few of the snacks prepared will feature honey!

Camp Pizza(for kids currently in 3rd-5th grades)

Why not start the conversation about healthy food by delving into the story of some old favorites? Join us as we go from soil to grain to flour to dough; from milk to cheese; from seeds to veggies to garden fresh sauce.

Using well-loved foods as our organizing theme, we invite your child to put on the hat of a “food scientist” and investigate the behind the scene stories of where our food comes from. This program culminates with delicious kid-grown pizza and also with a chance for kids to run their own farm stand. Includes several walking field trips. Gluten free options?  Of course!

Camp Pasta(for kids currently in 3rd-5th grades)

Pasta – who doesn’t love it?  Spaghetti, Linguini, ravioli… what’s the story behind all those crazy shapes and sizes?  And how about those yummy sauces?   Could we make our own marinara or pesto straight from the garden?  Through careful observation and experimentation in the garden, in the kitchen, and on field trips, we will explore pasta as well as a number of other delicious, healthful foods.  The week culminates in a home-grown pasta feed.  Gluten free options?  Of course!

Food Investigators(for kids currently in 3rd-5th grades)

This field trip based camp is for kids who are curious to know the story of where food comes from.  Get ready to ride the bus; visit farmers, farmers markets and grocery stores; and pull out the world map.  Whatever it takes to tell the story of where our food comes from!

 

 

Activities and field trips for each of these camps are different – families sometimes ask if it’s possible/appropriate to sign their kids up for multiple sessions. Our answer? Of course!
