Youth Garden Project Summer Camp!
The YGP Summer Day Camp provides a safe, fun, educational environment during summer vacation for youth entering 1st grade through 6th grade. Our summer program is 9:00am-4:00pm Monday through Friday and a place where children explore the garden and beyond with each week’s varying theme.
Children participate in three activities per day that tie to the theme and use the garden as much as possible as a learning tool. With the exception of Theater Week, campers spend the day on-site participating in activity times as well as garden time, swimming in the creek, snack and lunch times, and personal choice time. The Youth Garden Project Summer Camp is not only a place for learning and fun, but a place where campers build lasting friendships.
2014 Summer Camp Registration Materials will be available in April
