SUMMER CAMP @ SWEETWATER STARTS IN THE SUMMER OF 2024.
We are pleased to announce Wild Tribe’s camp program held at Sweetwater Organic Community Farm. Wild Tribe currently provides programming to children ages 7-11 throughout local counties in the Tampa Bay area. Their program has been designed with Florida’s Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS). At farm camp, campers will learn how to:
- Compost and maintain soil health
- Cook and preserve food
- Grow an organic garden from seed
- Identify numerous edible and medicinal plant species, native and non native
- Identify nutrients/chemicals in food
- Identify avian and aquatic species
- Make a biodegradable seed pot for sprouts
- Upcycle and create art with found objects
- Seed saving and storage
Campers will also have opportunities to take hikes, play games, interact with farm animals, sing songs, participate in a scavenger hunt, eat healthy foods and just be kids! Lessons cover benchmarks in Life and Earth sciences for grade 3-6. This is a great opportunity for campers to apply knowledge they will be learning in school the next year, or reinforce what they have learned from the year previous.
Age: Grade 3-6
