Summer Camps

2016 BannerWe offer a variety of outdoor day camps on our farm in the summertime. Our camps are educational, child-led, and FUN. All camps take place at our farm in Carnation, a 20-30-minute drive from anywhere on the Eastside and about 40 minutes from Seattle.

We will share the schedule for 2017 camps some time in December.
