Backyard Farm Camp at the JCRA | Kids Out and About Rochester

Backyard Farm Camp at the JCRA

Tend vegetable beds. Take care of chicks. It's a mini-camp where your camper is an urban farmer!

Spend two days learning how a backyard can be a farm! We are teaming up with Mary Fosnaught, the 4-H and Youth Development Extension Associate in NCSU's Prestage Department of Poultry Science to transform the Yurt Yard into a backyard urban farm.

Campers will become farmers during camp learning how to tend to the veggies growing in the garden as well as meet some feathered friends and others that turn an ordinary backyard into a productive urban farm. This 2-day mini camp will be sure to keep your camper engaged with hands-on activities.

Be sure to join us on Thursday afternoon at pickup for an end of camp Farmer's Market.

Rising 2nd through 5th graders. Enrollment is limited to 16 campers. Campers bring lunch and snack.

Member registration begins on January 28, 2019. Public registration begins February 11, 2019.
