A full day at Camp Fresh Roots lets campers dig deep, ask questions, find answers, and connect with the wider community! All full day programs include a farm fresh snack Monday-Thursday and lunch on Friday, cooked by the campers. Full day programs also take a field trip each week to see another part of our community’s food system in action.
A Day at Camp Fresh Roots
Our campers are the star of the show – we’ll follow their lead when it comes to the kinds of activities they’re most interested in! A typical camp day might look like:
Camp staff will offer games, songs, or art activities as campers arrive
9:15: Opening circle
We’ll check in and see how everyone’s doing, introduce the Theme of the Day, and sing a song to get us moving.
9:30: Morning Activity Time
In age-based groups, campers will help on the farm, tend the camp garden beds, explore the day’s theme through games or hands-on activities, and more. Campers will have morning snack during this time.
All campers have lunch together!
12:30 Rest time
A great time to read in the shade, play a quiet game, journal, draw or paint, or just close your eyes for a minute.
1:00 Afternoon Activity Time
Like the morning, but in the afternoon!
2:30 Choose Your Own Adventure
Campers will choose from activities our staff love, including making the all camp snack.
3:00 All Camp Snack
We’ll use what’s fresh on the farm to create a tasty snack for all to share.
3:15 All Camp Activity
Large group game or activity about the day’s theme.
3:45 Closing Circle
A chance to reflect on what we did, and share any reminders for the next day.
