There are still a few spots left in each of the two four-week sessions of Terra Summer – the most delicious summer camp around!! Register now!! Call 828-782-7842!!
Terra Summer is a four-week summer day camp that uses the magical world of food to teach children about the world around them. Cooking and farming merge with geography, history, math, art, and the sciences in this innovative hands-on learning experience that takes children on a journey of discovery behind what we eat and the impact of our choices on our world.
At Terra Summer we explore the issues related to the food we eat here and elsewhere around the world: Where it comes from; who grows it and how; and how much it really costs; the empowerment of the individual to make food choices that are better for everyone; our responsibility toward the earth and communal resources; how the resources travel and are treated; awareness of other lands and peoples; respect for our bodies through nutrition and exercise; and how food connects us all, in strife and joy.
The hearth of Terra Summer is a state-of-the-art kitchen classroom lab on an organic farm. Children learn to grow food in their plots and to cook in the kitchen. We also make food art, journal, and take many food-related field trips. It is a voyage from inside out, from individual to social, from local to global. From the little picture to the big picture. Terra Summer is a fun, soulful, holistic experience intended to help children become more thoughtful, aware human beings.
