Farm Camp 2018

 

We are very excited to tell you that this year, with generous sponsorship from ATB Financial, Grow Calgary will be holding its 1st summer farm camp for vulnerable children. The summer camps will be held on a weekly basis from July 2 to August 31 at our farm location. The camp focus will be urban farming, team building and most importantly, fun and games. We will be accepting children between the ages of 8 and 17 and there will be no charge for the camp as the financial burden for holding this event will be taken care of by Grow Calgary and our sponsors.

Camp Dates:

All camps will run Monday through Friday from 8am-6pm. Please note that we are looking into putting transportation service in place to aid in getting kids to and from camp.

Camp 1: July 2nd – 6th 
Camp 2: July 9th – 13th 
Camp 3: July 16th – 20th 
Camp 4: July 23rd – 27th 
Camp 5: July 30th – August 3rd 
Camp 6: August 6th – 10th 
Camp 7: August 13th – 17th 
Camp 9: August 27th – 31st 
What to Bring to Camp
  • Lots of water. Grow Calgary does not have potable water so it is important to bring lots with you!
  • Dress appropriately for the weather, this means extra layers for cold days and hats etc. for hot days.
  • Sunscreen
  • A lunch and snacks as needed (please note that some snacks will be provided thanks to Nature’s Bakery generous donations)

What to Leave at Home

  • Insect Repellant (we acknowledge that mosquitos can be a concern, however, we would like to avoid the use of it around the plants. We kindly ask that your child applies any insect repellant before they enter the farm)
  • Gardening gloves and gardening equipment, as we have everything they may require at the farm already

Please contact us at 403-400-GROW(4769) or farmcamp@growcalgary.ca to nominate & refer a child to our free camp.
