If your teens or preteens love gardening and working with younger children, this is for them! Junior counselors help set up and clean up farm or garden activities, assist camp staff, lead small group activities and learn about organic gardening and farming. It’s all the fun of camp, plus the opportunity to develop leadership skills.
Junior counselors come 30 minutes before campers arrive and stay 30 minutes after campers depart to help set-up and clean-up (built into the times listed). Orientation to camp policies and procedures will be provided. Like campers, junior counselors bring their own snack and lunch.
At This Camp
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to run a farm business? Join us in this classic Tilth Alliance farm camp! Campers will learn about both local and global farm practices, harvest food for their market, and design the concept for a farm stand and CSA that they will present at the end of camp. Along the way, we will play games, maintain and plant vegetable beds, and talk with our very own Market Programs team.
