Summer Day Camp Root Cause Farm
9am to 12pm

The Summer Day Camp at Root Cause Farm is open to 6-12 year-olds. Guided by three seasoned educators and gardening enthusiasts, children will focus on crafts, songs, gardening, poetry, and theater games ~ particularly puppetry. Children will benefit from the support safe spaces for exploration and expression. Institute founder/director, Amy Wright Glenn, Kimberley Turner Hall, and Clare Duplace happily collaborate together to craft a wonderful, restorative, playful, summer day camp! The camp registration is capped at 12 children ~ so fill out this pre-registration form to apply for space today.
All activities will be outdoors and screen-free.
*Teachers for the camp are offering their time as a donation and all donations made by parents are used to cover the cost of supplies/crafts etc. Any remaining amount will be donated to Root Cause Farm.
