Little Sprouts

Campers ages 4–5 have an opportunity to meet the chickens, dig in the dirt, smell herbs and taste fresh fruits and vegetables. Using stories, songs, crafts, and games, our youngest campers will learn about our farm while enjoying playful, fun-filled mornings. Please note: This camp runs June 18-21 from 9–11:30am.

Farm Camp

Learn how to grow food and flowers, harvest and cook with our culinary team, and explore new spaces with us! Youth will spend the week learning about the American River Ranch and connecting to their food, their health and the environment. In the garden, around the farm, and at the American River, campers will become stewards of the natural world and build a new community of friends. Check out our sample schedule below.
