Wild Tribe Summer Camp

Where farming, food, and fun come together in a sustainable way.

SUMMER CAMP @ Sweetwater is starting in 2022

SUMMER CAMP @ SWEETWATER STARTS IN THE SUMMER OF 2022. The farm is open for day camps to visit the farm, to schedule a field trip please email: office@sweetwater-organic.org

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.

Please contact our Camp Coordinator Christine Wallace, at marketmanager@sweetwater-organic.org  or 813 785 5453 with any questions.
