Feeling sun-warmed soil on your hands, hearing the soft flutter of hummingbird wings, tasting a crisp carrot plucked right from the earth, and observing a fuzzy bumblebee laden with pollen, resting on a flower petal.
These moments ignite curiosity in young minds and bodies while laying the foundation for life-long connection to the natural world!
Oxbow’s weeklong Summer Farm Camps in Carnation immerse kids ages 4 to 14 in the magic and discovery of nature on an organic vegetable farm and conservation center.
Oxbow’s kid-friendly farm fields, forests, and wetlands set the stage for campers to play in, learn about, and connect to the Earth in a safe and inclusive setting.
With guidance from our team of experienced environmental educators, Oxbow Summer Camps spark creativity through art, stories, songs, and child-led play.
Connect kids to their food by harvesting and eating farm-fresh fruit and veggies, and equip children with tools to care for, better understand and talk about the health of our environment.
All camp sessions are adapted to fit the needs of each age group. Campers are encouraged to join us for multiple sessions!
