Summer is in full swing here at the Garden Classroom with 47 kids from 4 to 10 years old enjoying garden activities, the land, and each other daily.
Every morning, our day camps include "farm chores" to promoteawareness, curiosity and a care-taking ethic among our campers through:
- Tending our wonderful flock of chickens,
- Observing, recording, and reporting the weather,
- Walking the UCSC Farm to interview a farmer and conduct the daily farm report, and
- Making fresh strawberry popsicles for tasty hydration during story time.
More than 270 children will experience the magic of this program and place during our 8-week camp season.
