The 2015 Summer Day Camps with Live Earth Farm Discovery Program were a great success!
Almost 100 children attended our five weeks of camp this year. More than ever! We also exceeded all prior years’ scholarship generosity, thanks in part to two generous grants from two local family foundations. These grants additionally helped to fund a wonderful Leader in Training Program for local youth from all walks of life.
We believe that campers have a richer experience when they can socialize and make friends with kids from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. This year we revamped Young Farmers camp into “Farm to Table” camp. It involved a lot of hands on activities in the kitchen classroom, harvesting, preparing and cooking with the farm produce. This is a wonderful way to encourage children to eat more fruits and veggies! We will certainly have “Farm to Table” camp next year.
Part of what makes our summer camps to great are our teenage volunteer Leaders in Training (LIT’s). The mix of first year LIT’s with some of our more experienced leaders made for a dynamic learning and personal growth opportunity for everyone. Thank you LIT’s!
We can’t forget to thank the parents, guardians, and grandparents who make it possible for these children to have the chance to spend a week on a farm learning about arts, crafts, food, and farming. Thank you!
Tell your friends that Day Camp at Live Earth Farm is the best and next year will be better than ever!
