For children going into 1st-3rd grades in the 2019-2020 school year
Join us this Summer at the Outback Farm at WWU as we plant and tend vegetables, prepare delicious food straight out of the garden, visit with chickens, and learn through hands-on exploration and experimentation. Count on dirty hands, silly stories, and yummy fresh-from-the-garden snacks! Our 2018-2019 Food Educator team will be leading the fun!
July 8-12, 2019

Waitlist: Camps require a minimum of 6 kids to run. We will contact you if the camp numbers are low and offer you either a refund or the opportunity to switch to a different camp. If a camp is full, you will be given the option to be added to the waitlist. If a space opens up, we will notify you and collect payment at that time to secure your space.
T-shirts and other merchandise: Would your child (or you!) like a Common Threads t-shirt? Please visit our online store to make a purchase. We also have aprons, mugs, and baby onesies. You can either pick up in advance from our office or we will bring it on the first morning of camp.
Visit our website to download the Camp Family Handbook for all logistical details (e.g. drop-off and pick-up, what to bring, cancellation policy, etc.)
"Alaina absolutely loved it. She told me about the baby turkeys, the baby chickens, the goats, the kid who wanted to feed the goats when it was not time to, eating the kale, sorrel, and arugula, cooking the rice with vegetables—she got to cut the onion, making the scarecrow. I am so excited that she is excited about her experiences. She says she LOVES sorrel, and wants me to put arugula in her lunch!!!"
