More than veggies grow at this farm! 

See for yourself at our 2020 summer day camps.

At Sunbury Urban Farm, children spend their days exploring their world, digging in the garden, splashing in the creek, and building forest forts… all while forging connections, developing confidence and compassion, and gaining a deeper understanding of their ties to the nature and the food that they eat.

Choose from our standard camp program, Farm Explorers, or several specialty-themed weeks for older children. No matter the program, all day campers will visit the garden, play in the woods, make a craft project, and cook using fresh garden ingredients. Each day will include a variety of structured activities and unstructured discovery time.

Times & Cost

At camp, kids help plant, harvest, and cook vegetables straight  from the garden. Each day, a group of campers will help our staff prepare lunch and afternoon snack for everyone. Campers in Farm Explorer will prepare lunch one day during the week and Farm Chef campers will cook everyday. Campers in other programs will help to prepare afternoon snacks.

 

Since meals are prepared on site and mostly from scratch, most allergens and dietary restrictions can be accommodated. If your camper has dietary restrictions beyond needing meals that are gluten-free, vegetarian, or free of a singular allergen, please contact us before camp to discuss options.

COVID-19 Response

SUF is committed to hosting a safe and fun summer program in the midst of the current health crisis. In order to focus energy and resources on increasing safety for kids and staff, we’ve had to make some changes to how programs will be delivered. Lunch will no longer be provided (although morning and afternoon snacks will) and all campers will now be enrolled in a general camp program instead of the originally offered themed programs.
