Grow Tweens Camp ~ for rising 7th - 9th graders
July 10 - 14 ~ 8:30 am to 4:00 pm ~ Cost $150
Our Tween Camp was great! The pictures here paint a thousands words of how much the youth enjoyed their immersion into aquaponic and hydroponic farming! The campers were able to learn how you can grow food using fish, why we grow vertically, what a float bed is and how to make one, and different ways to grow in both dirt and water. They made their own - to take home - raised beds, grow bags, and hydroponic systems. In addition to the hands-on learning about how to grow amazing edibles, the kids enjoyed lots of fun and games and creative art!
We look forward to camp next year, and we hope you will join us!
