What's Included

Sustainability Camp is an exciting collaboration between the Bike Depot’s Bike Camp and Sprout City Farm’s Farm Camp, hosted at the Denver Green School. During the four weeks of Sustainability Camp, youth will learn how to live “greener” through experiential education by growing healthy food while caring for the environment as well as riding and maintaining their own bicycle to use as transportation. The four-week session is divided into sections: week one- Farm Camp, weeks two and three- Bike Camp, and week four- Farm Camp. The camp’s overarching sustainability theme will challenge youth to think about sustainable living within their personal lives while focusing on teamwork and community building in the process. During the Farm Camp sections, youth will learn about the natural world around them and how to sustainably grow healthy, organic food. During the Bike Camp section, campers will learn both bicycle safety as well as bicycle maintenance with the goal of sustainably operating and maintaining their own form of transportation. The group will bike to field trip locations such as Sustainability Park to gain insight into current practices. Finally, the program will culminate with the construction of two innovative new projects on the farm: a bicycle-powered blender and a bicycle-powered plow!
