Soil to Supper camp at the University of Northern Iowa will be held at Creekside Harmony Educational Garden.
Join us for hands on gardening activities and fun this summer! This camp will focus on learning where our food comes from, how it's grown, and how it gets to our table. Campers will also learn to prepare simple recipes from the garden each day.
This camp will be M,W,F June 18-29 from 9-11:30 am and is open to students age 8-11 with a fee of $45.
Students are required to wear closed toed shoes each day for safety to comply with GAP regulations. Students will be out in the garden for approx. 2.5 hrs per day and will need to be prepared to perform light physical labor and wear clothing that can get dirty. Students are highly encouraged to wear sunscreen and long pants. Participants will be provided with water bottles and enjoy snacks daily that they prepare from the garden.
Students will be working with hand gardening tools and will be expected to handle themselves in an appropriate manner when working with tools to avoid any injury to themselves or others. We need to be able to provide a safe learning environment to all who are participating, and any student who cannot conduct themselves appropriately will be sent home without exception.
NOTE: Camp regsitration deadline is June 10th and there is a limited registration of 12 students.
