Campers experience a lifestyle that is simple, rugged and exciting. Helping to run the farm, the setting offers a safe, yet challenging environment for kids to discover, grow, do and make while enjoying the great outdoors.
Our days are filled with movement and fueled by good food and great fun.
Even though camp days are long and we need loads of energy, we think of food as far more than just calories. Food connects us and everything around us, and campers are intricately involved in the food we share.
Much of what we eat comes from on-site at Angelic Organics Learning Center. Part of the rest we source from local farmers e.g. Hazzard Free. Nearly everything is certified organic.
Angelic Organics Learning Center has a certified kitchen and dining area in the Lodge where we can do meal prep, but there are other areas campers will be involved, largely outdoors. We use the bike blender for breakfast smoothies (and pesto), the brick oven for pizza (and roasting veggies) and campfires for cook-outs.
We consider food as medicine and, through positive interactions throughout, including offering a wide array of tastes and textures and sharing meals together, we foster healthy relationships with food. For 2019, we plan to focus on campers learning food practicality, i.e. skills they can take home and put to use.
The Lodge at Angelic Organics Learning Center has a floor for girls and a floor for boys, along with bathrooms and showers.
Campers will also have the chance to sleep under the stars in our large canvas bell tents (16.4' across) on cots at least one night. This will be our 'camp-out' experience where we will contend with weather, bugs, and the challenges of no electricity. A character and grit-building experience that the kids love!
