March, 2019

Camp 2018 was our best yet, but in an effort to continue to improve the camp experience, we've partnered with Angelic Organics Learning Center to run camp with them at their amazing 200 acre facility. The organization and their mission are awesome. Here are a few chances to see us where you can learn more about camp this summer:

Remaining Spring Events:
March 23: Chicago's Good Food Fest, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
April 14: Planting Drop-In at Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse, 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM.

Click HERE to RSVP for any events.

Also, there are spring programs for kids and families at the campsite, Angelic Organics Learning Center:
Just Kidding Family Weekend, April 12-13
Baby Plants and Animals, April 27
Animal Day, May 18

At camp, each week, we began with high expectations (we believe kids are more capable than they know) and the kids deliver greatness. In the meantime, please give kids responsibility. They are creative and competent.

There are still spots for camp 2019. Camp signup is  HERE.

P.S. Lots of camp photos from last summer are on Facebook and Instagram.

P.P.S. Nature's Farm Camp won the Golden Beet Award in the 2018 Community Food Project category, from the Illinois Stewardship Alliance.

Select Media Coverage

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 .

p.s. We're thrilled to be supporting members of the Chicagoland coalition of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). We love the local 'Band of Farmers.'
