Imagine a summer camp that dives into food production, preparation and exploration, with a mix of farm and kitchen experiences that delight the senses and inspire the soul. The Co-op has teamed up with Rogue Valley Farm to School to focus on cultivating the ability to grow and cook delicious, healthy, seasonal meals for children ages 7 to 10.
We have three different camps for you to consider- sign up for one, two, or all three. Register now to make sure you get the session that works best for your family.

Camp 2: July 17-21 / Soups, Salads, and Sandwiches! This week of food fun will focus on learning how to create staple meals from scratch.
