This program provides environmental education and physical activity, and gives children experience preparing balanced meals.  Second and third grade Somerville campers cook and eat their own delicious lunch each day.  They participate in outdoor activities in the Community Growing Center’s garden space, and go on a field trip to Gaining Ground’s vegetable farm in Concord, MA.

We would like to thank our partners and supporters at Somerville Public Food Service Department, the Somerville Community Growing Center, and Gaining Ground Farm for helping make 2012’s camp a success! Unfortunately, due to financial considerations and lawn recovery needs at the Growing Center, we will not be able to run  an April Vacation Camp in 2013.  Please contact us next year to find out about a 2014 camp!
