Experience our summer camp

Camp Leadership Program for ages 12-14

CAMP LEADERSHIP PROGRAM for Youth ages 13-15

The Camp Leadership Program (CLP) combines service, leadership development, skill building, adventure and fun! The program is hands-on with 80 acres on a certified organic farm and woods, creeks, fields and gardens to explore. Archery challenges all to be their best whether a novice or experienced. Time with animals is a part of every day. CLP's learn about where food comes from as they care for a big garden and learn from farmers. Culinary arts with Chef Anwar Rasheed will include healthy snack making and a weekly cooking class. There is a weekly field trip for off-farm adventures.

Art, science, recipes and special projects are connected to weekly themes:

Week 1-Critter Capers June 21-25

Take special care of our barnyard critters. Explore habitats of wild animals in the creeks, gardens and forest. Piece together a web of life from our discoveries. 

Week 2-Water Water Everywhere June 27-July 1

Creek adventures, conservation projects, water obstacle course, water life cycle and more!

Week 3-Fairy Tales and Super Heroes July 5-8

Small but mighty-40% of all life on Earth! Incredible creators, recyclers and food for others. Find weird and cool bugs in every corner of the farm.
