Growing Young Gardeners Camp

Growing Young Gardeners camp at the University of Northern Iowa will be held at Creekside Harmony Educational Garden.

Campers will take part in arts, crafts and games while doing hands on gardening activities. Participants will also learn how science, math, and nutrition all play a vital role in growing a garden and a healthy body. 

This camp is open to students age 5-8 and the fee is $45.

Students are required to wear closed toed shoes each day for safety to comply with GAP regulations. Students will be out in the garden for approx. 1.5 hrs per day and will need to be prepared to perform light physical labor and wear clothing that can get dirty. Students are highly encouraged to wear sunscreen and long pants. Participants will be provided with water bottles and enjoy snacks daily that they prepare from the garden.

Students will be working with hand gardening tools and will be expected to handle themselves in an appropriate manner when working with tools to avoid any injury to themselves or others. We need to be able to provide a safe learning environment to all who are participating, and any student who cannot conduct themselves appropriately will be sent home without exception.

NOTE: Camp regsitration deadline is June 15th and there is a limited registration of 12 students.
