Farm Camp Information and Registration

Everdale provides hands-on food and farming education to build and engage healthy local food communities. Farm Camp is a unique and dynamic program that highlights the best of what Everdale’s organic production farm has to offer! 

Now in its eighth season Farm Camp has grown from three ideas- explore, engage, and discover. Our goal is to provide a camp experience like no other for your child! Each day your camper will come home with stories of collecting eggs, feeding sheep, exploring the forest, harvesting vegetables with the farmers AND delicious goodies like pesto, jam, salsa, bread and so much more!  We like to keep our camps small so sign up early to give your camper a unique and unforgettable experience on the farm!
All sessions run from 9am- 4pm
Everdale is happy to offer sibling discounts! 10% off the second camper you register and 15% off each subsequent camper.
Be sure to check out the FAQ’s for more information on Farm Camp. If you have other questions about the programs, please contact Adrienne, our Farm Camp Coordinator- farmcamp@everdale.org
March Break Camp:  Ages 6-10              
 March 15th to 17th
For the first time Everdale is offering a March Break Farm Camp! The farm is exciting and interesting year round and we are so happy to be able to share everything that is happening with campers earlier in the year!
Campers will participate in active and engaging outdoor experiences- from harvesting (yes, harvesting) to exploring the forest and using the new board walk system and cooking a Farm Lunch- there is no shortage of things to do here at Everdale, even in the winter! Campers will make everything from gnocchi and pasta to soup and bread. This exciting opportunity will see the farmer in your family experience the farm in a whole new way!
Smaller sessions allow us to individualize the activities and provide campers with a unique personal experience. We require a minimum of 12 participants to run this program. Registered participants will be refunded their registration fee in the event that the program is cancelled.
$155 for three fun filled days!

Grounded in a comprehensive and dynamic approach to food, farming and fun, this session allows campers to explore everything that the farm has to offer in a safe and inclusive way.  Campers will be busy with our five focus areas: planting, harvesting, animal care, cooking, and creative art. From seeding veggies, to harvesting garlic, to planting kale, to creative art and preparing delicious salsa, campers will be deeply rooted in this unique journey.  Aside from their farm tasks, campers will also bring home a daily taste of the farm and lots of recipes to share with friends and family – campers new cooking and farm skills will continue to bring nourishment and smiles long after camp ends!
Sign your child up to be a Farm Explorer and give them an experience they will remember and love forever!
$225 for the whole fun filled week!

Future Farmers: Ages 10-14          July 24th-28th

The future farmers program is for the slightly older camper.  The program focuses on all aspects of farm production with a dash of leadership and team building.   We also take into account the camper’s ability to engage longer with tasks and also their ability for some light tool use – both can lead to some incredible garden outcomes and mouth-watering farm products! Most of the week is spent creating, learning, and planning in preparation for Thursday’s Pop-Up market table at our Harvest Share pick up. All proceeds from the “pay-what-you-can” market table go towards a Camp Scholarship established by the Future Farmers in 2014.  This is a special program that allows campers to become leaders and guide their own experience on the farm and truly create a positive change for the future.
$230 for the whole fun filled week!
