What's Included

Join us for a residential summer camp for middle and high school students in Trout Lake, WA. We will explore Trout Lake, WA, a quiet agricultural valley at the base of Mt. Adams in the Columbia River Gorge, for a fun week of farming and biking. Our ‘base camp’ will be Broad Fork Farms, a beautiful working organic farm. Each day we will bike to different farms and get our hands dirty helping out. Afternoons we will find time for recreation, relaxation, and enjoyment. In the evenings, we will create delicious meals from what food we’ve harvested during the day. During the week we will have a chance to learn about a diverse spectrum of agriculture–organic dairy, artisan cheese making, beekeeping, vegetable and herb growing, as well as pastured livestock for wool and meat production. As we work and play, we will have conversations about the challenges and opportunities of farming and dive into relevant science and policy topics. If you love food, the outdoors, to learn and try new things, and if you are curious about organic farming–this week is for you.
