It’s high June at the farm, and that can only mean one thing–that plants are growing like mad, spring programming is coming to a close, the CSA is starting, cucumber beetles are stealing our food, and second successions are being sown in the prop house.
Okay, so there is actually a lot going on! But the MOST EXCITING part of our spring at Oxbow Education is preparation for SUMMER CAMP!
Oxbow’s camps come in many shapes and flavors. There are five of them in July and August this season! Check out your options:
Oxbow Community Camp; July 21-25 for 7-12-year-olds
Join us in the first annual Oxbow Community Camp just for friends of the farm. As usual, kids will crunch around on roots in boots and munch for lunch on fruits and shoots! But Oxbow’s Community Camp is special–in addition to the usual farm fun n’ games, we will work together to enliven the spirit of “philanthro-pea” in spreading summertime love–and produce–to our friends in need in the community. Kids will learn about gleaning, harvest for the Food Bank, and help spread the bounty from Oxbow to those who need it most.
Come on down to the farm this summer and help us show our neighbors the REAL meaning of TLC…Tender love and carrots!

Farm and Forest Camps with Wilderness Awareness
Once again, Oxbow is partnering with Wilderness Awareness School to offer four weeks of camp for kids of all ages. During this week of daytime adventures, the campers will explore the meeting place between farm and forest. Kids will dig roots and pick fruits, save, sow, and snack on seeds. They will make their own sun tea, fresh fruit popsicles, and farm burritos. Each day we enjoy storytelling, songs, crafts, and learning about surrounding food, farm and forest life.
