For kids currently in 3rd-5th grade (or entering 4th-6th grade in September 2019)
Why not start off the conversation about healthy food by delving into the story of some old favorites? Join us as we go from soil to grain to flour to dough; from milk to cheese; from seeds to veggies to garden fresh sauce. Using well-loved foods as our organizing theme, we invite your child to put on the hat of a "food scientist" and investigate the behind-the-scenes stories of where our food comes from. This program culminates with delicious kid-grown pizza and also with a chance for kids to run their own farm stand. Includes several walking field trips. Gluten free options? Of course! Our 2018-2019 Food Educator team will be leading the fun!

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!!!"
