June, 2018

Summer is here and that means we're in full camp planning mode.  Our goal remains the same: maximizing fun and growth for the campers by creating a welcoming place for kids to flourish.

We have the greatest team ever, preparing to bring their expertise and unique talents to the farm this summer. We can hardly wait to see you.

There are four spaces still available for camp, register HERE.

p.s. Photos from past summers are on Facebook and Instagram.

A piece titled "Fresh from the Farm" about Tim Magner and camp in the Loyola Academy magazine (page 4 & 5). A guest article in 2017 on Good Food on Every Table and also in 2016 on Good Food on Every Table, a piece on Farm Camps in Chicago Crain's Magazine and a guest post in the nationally acclaimed Fed Up with Lunch.

The Mike Nowak (radio) Show interviewed us and Rob Gardner of The Local Beet gave us a shout-out in his Good Food Fest Wrap-up. We were featured on WGN TV Mid-day News. Note: for the 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 GreenhouseGood Food on Every Table featured an article on Farm Camp .
