Summer Opportunities for Youth at Harvest Hope Farm
Harvesting Hope for Others Farm Camp is a 12-week day camp for children ages 6-13. The camp meets weekly for 1.5 hours from May-August. During this time, each child grows a 4x6 raised garden bed from planting to harvest. All produce raised in the garden beds is donated to families in need in the Fargo/Moorhead area. In addition to growing produce, children learn how to interact with and care for farm animals. Children feed the animals, as well as learn about food products that farm animals produce for humans. Children also have the opportunity to experience nature through organized activities and free play in the woods. Space is limited to 20 participants per session in 2021. Dates: Wednesday June 2nd through Wednesday August 18th, 2021.

Important Announcement regarding Covid-19: At this time registrations are being accepted and we are hopeful that Farm Camp, Llama Llama Camp, and GEM will proceed as planned. We encourage your to register your child(ten) for these activities that will enrich their well-being, keep them active and teach them how to pay it forward to others. In the event that Farm Camp cannot be held in it's usual format, alternative plans are being made so that Harvest Hope Farm may still provide fresh produce to those in need. Please note: All checks for payment will be held until we are certain that Farm Camps may proceed.
