Life Lab opens the garden for summer day camps

Registration has opened for summer day camps offered by Life Lab at the UC Santa Cruz Farm.

"Garden Sprouts" is a new program this year for 4-6 year olds, inspired by the Seeds of Wonder preschool and kindergarten field trip program. Garden Sprouts will serve eight day campers on Monday and Wednesday mornings over two weeks in two separate sessions in July and August. Instructor-to-camper ratio is 1:4 and cost is $160 per session.

Other 5-day-per-week camp programs are available for 7-10 year olds and 11-14 year olds that include crafts, harveting, cooking, games, farm chores, trips, and storytelling. Rates range from $270 per week with sibling discounts and financial assistance available.
