Farm to Table Camp
*Note: this program is not running in Summer 2021
All gender, entering 7-9 in fall 2020.
This one-week program will provide a group of campers the chance to explore the food systems of Camp Orkila and the San Juan Islands. Campers will spend time working with the Orkila gardener learning about growing your own food in a sustainable way, as well as volunteering at farms around the islands to learn more about local food production systems. The group will cook or prepare one meal per day and explore culinary arts and techniques. This program will give campers the opportunity to learn about sustainable food in a creative and engaging environment. Campers will also participate in traditional camp activities like campfire and open rec, and have the opportunity to explore our ropes course.
