Come explore the mysteries of the garden with us! During the week, campers will discover the natural wonders of the garden and critters living in them. Our camps days will include planting and harvesting, preparing delicious snacks, playing games, singing, storytelling and garden crafts. Each day will have a different theme (bugs, seeds, cooking) to appeal to a wide range of interests in the garden!

Sprouting Scientists Camp 

Learn to be a scientist in the garden! This camp will explore how science can be used to investigate and improve our gardens and the environment through hands-on experiences in our “Bozone Ozone Bus” mobile greenhouse, school gardens, and on a farm field trip. Campers will discover the wonders and importance of sunlight, the water cycle, soil and compost, insect-plant interactions, and biodiversity to our food systems. Each camper will also have the opportunity to design and implement their own garden science experiment!

Seed to Snack Camp 

Join us in the garden to discover where food comes from through hands-on gardening, cooking and science activities! We will use investigative skills to identify and explore the relationships between insects and plants, create garden-related art projects, learn about the science of plant parts and compost, make garden journals and recipe books, and cook and enjoy a homemade snack every day. Each session will include a field trip to a local farm to help youth experience food production on a larger scale and explore various aspects of the food system, from the seed to our snack!

What folks are saying about Gallatin Valley Farm to School’s Summer Camps: 

Kids dig veggies  – Bozeman Chronicle Article summer 2015

“My children walked away with a better understanding of how food from the garden gets to their plates. They learned some fabulous, and HEALTHY, recipes for making snacks and meals from the garden, and they felt empowered to continue preparing healthy food after the camp. Thank you Erin, and the rest of the staff, for creating such a fun, educational and worthwhile experience for my children.” – 2015 Parent
She was very proud about the new knowledge she has about bees, environment, food. She refused to eat kale before camp and now she does!” – 2016 Parent
