Ashland Food Co-op

Sign Up for Co-op Summer Camps

Education is one of the key missions for Ashland Food Co-op. We are especially focusing on children this year by offering a number of events that will teach kids about healthy eating. Since food plays a vital role in childhood development, and because learning about where food comes from makes more knowledgeable consumers at any age, we have dedicated this summer’s Kids Camps to giving youngsters a true hands-on farm to table experience.

We know parents are already making plans for family summer activities. There are three camps for you to consider. Register soon to make sure you get the session that works best for your family’s summer schedule.

2016 Kids Summer Camps

We’ve teamed up with Rogue Valley Farm to School to offer 3 great camps, appropriate for ages 7-9.

Each week campers will dive into food production, preparation and exploration, with a mix of farm and kitchen experiences that delight the senses and inspire the soul. Join Rogue Valley Farm to School staff as they cultivate the ability to grow and cook delicious, healthy, seasonal meals. Hands-on farming and cooking will be a part of each day, as will seasonal crafts, science investigations and fun-loving games.

Camp will run from 9am-1pm each day.

Monday-Wednesday-Friday campers will be cooking in the Co-op Classroom.

Tuesday-Thursday campers will be on-farm at the SOU Center for Sustainability.

Camp 1: June 13-17

Camp 2: July 18-22

Camp 3: Aug 8-12

Cost for each camp:

$175 Co-op Owners

$180 General Public

Scholarships available for Jackson Care Connect members who must register at the Info Desk. All others may register online or at the Info Desk.

Ashland Food Coop

Ashland Food Co-op is a consumer cooperative that operates for the benefit of our owners. It’s simple to own your share of the Co-op. Just make a one-time, refundable equity investment of $100. You may pay in full or make an initial $10 payment! You'll be reminded at the register when another quarterly $10 payment is due until your $100 equity purchase is paid. In return, the Co-op pledges to operate for the long-term health of our community. Unlike most businesses that make decisions primarily to maximize profits, cooperatives make decisions to maximize service to their owners and the community. More on how to become an Owner
