We are pleased to announce Wild Tribe’s camp program held at Sweetwater Organic Community Farm.  Wild Tribe currently provides programming to children ages 7-11 throughout local counties in the Tampa Bay area. Their program has been designed with Florida’s Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS). At farm camp, campers will learn how to:

  • Compost and maintain soil health
  • Cook and preserve food
  • Grow an organic garden from seed
  • Identify numerous edible and medicinal plant species, native and non native
  • Identify nutrients/chemicals in food
  • Identify avian and aquatic species
  • Make a biodegradable seed pot for sprouts
  • Upcycle and create art with found objects
  • Seed saving and storage

 

Campers will also have opportunities to take hikes, play games, interact with farm animals, sing songs, participate in a scavenger hunt, eat healthy foods and just be kids! Lessons cover benchmarks in Life and Earth sciences for grade 3-6. This is a great opportunity for campers to apply knowledge they will be learning in school the next year, or reinforce what they have learned from the year previous.
