News and Events
The spring thaw has us thinking about long summer days. And gearing up for overnight summer camp! #SupportingGrowth. #LifeSkills. #GreatFood.
We still have a couple spaces left in our August 19-21 Weekend Camp HERE.
Of note: our next Teen Food Leadership Summit (females aged 16-19) happens Memorial Day Weekend. We'll dig into great food (and farming) and see how it solves problems: #Disease, #RuralEconomies, #ClimateChange, #ConcentratedPower, #Racism. For more details click HERE. We will also host a Summit in October.
Note: We understand COVID remains a risk and stay abreast of best practices (from the CDC and American Camp Association) to keep kids and their families safe and healthy.
Sign up for our newsletter below to stay in the loop, for both Nature's Farm Camp updates and other opportunities, e.g. Cook County Forest Preserve outings. Past COVID-19 updates are HERE.
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.
SELECT MEDIA COVERAGE
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.
