We are doing all we can to make overnight camp happen this summer - including talking with state and local officials about how to safely re-open. Ultimately, we will need approval from the IL Department of Health. 

Sign up for our newsletter below to stay abreast of camp updates and other opportunities, e.g. Cook County Forest Preserve outings. We have more on our COVID-19 update HERE. Additionally, there are opportunities to visit the farm safely this winter and spring. Please check out the calendar!

Camp photos from past summers, plus news on healthy childhood development are on Facebook and nice photos are on Instagram.


P.S. We love and support local farms and regenerative organic agriculture. Nature’s Farm Camp won the Golden Beet Award in the 2018 Community Food Project category, from the Illinois Stewardship Alliance.

Included here are a few sample MEDIA coverage we have received over the years: A piece titled “Fresh from the Farm” about camp in the Loyola Academy Magazine (page 4 & 5). Articles on camp and food in Good Food on Every Table and here. We were covered in a piece on Farm Camps in Chicago Crain’s Magazine and a guest post in the nationally acclaimed Fed Up with Lunch.

The Local Beet gave us a shout-out in the Good Food Fest Wrap-up and we were featured on WGN TV Mid-day News as well as WCPT radio and WGN radio. Note: for the WGN TV gig we borrowed a couple things from awesome Chicago friends, e.g. microgreens from local food innovator The Urban Canopy and the flat of mint from The Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse
