Summer Camp

 2017 Truly Living Well Summer Camp

Truly Living Well is home to a unique summer camp, from May 30th through July 28st. Children ages 6 to 12 and 12 to 15 learn to grow and sustain an organic farm right in the city. The curriculum includes farm chores and creative activities, which introduce children to the world of growing, harvesting and enjoying fresh food from the garden. Daily hands-on sessions, preparing lunch with Chef Lara Holland, are an exciting part of our program. Campers care for chickens and gather eggs daily, swim once weekly and spend afternoons in our indoor club house one block from camp.
This year, families can choose from two themes: Farm to Fork Around the World or Science, Math, and Magic in the Garden.
During our Farm to Fork sessions, campers will;
  • Participate in mock “travel” excursions using passports they design and create themselves
  • Make geographic world and country maps, matching foods with place
  • Chart their own personal journey, learning about the foods and cultures they might encounter
  • With chefs from abroad, prepare international foods for several of their lunches
In Science, Math and Magic in the Garden, campers will:
  • Discover science all around us, especially in the seen and unseen world of the garden.
  • Make measurements and calculations to design a garden bed for a specific space.
  • Ponder Fibonacci in sunflowers, and other plants.
  • Spin plates and learn magic from a young magician.
