After a wildly successful inaugural season, we're excited to announce that information about Arcadia Farm Camp 2013 is now available!
We're making a few changes this time around to make camp more accessible and more fun. For example, we'll provide a transportation option to and from the farm from Old Town and Capitol Hill.* We've also opened camp up to older kids, so that eleven-year-olds and twelve-year-olds can join us. We're even offering an early bird discount for those who sign up before March 15, 2013.
This year we're also offering different themes each week: Little Locavores, Green Growers, Small Chefs, and Young Farmers. While every week definitely includes the basics - food, farming, and fun - we'll include special activities depending on the theme.
And we're definitely sticking with what works: morning chores like weeding and collecting fresh eggs, chef demonstrations, water games on hot days, taste tests, harvesting for the daily salad bar and much, much more.
We're opening registration on February 1, 2013, so stay tuned to our blog and our website for more info. In the meantime, you can also head over to our FAQ page to learn more about camp.
*Transportation is contingent on sufficient ridership, though, so tell your friends to sign up!
