Wertheim’s Gardens & RGW Candy Company
2021 Down On The Farm
Summer Camp Line-up
Held on our 6 acre farm, our Gardening Series of Camps will allow the campers will learn about nature, growing their own food, harnessing the power of herbs, and be creative using only what nature offers; and our Candy Camps will take the campers into our certified kitchen and teach them the secret behind making great candies.
All Camps are for 4th – 8th Grades and are LIMITED to 8 participants per session. Unless otherwise stated, all camps are from 1 PM - 4 PM. All-Day camps are 9 AM - 4 PM with a sack lunch required to be brought.
Based on feedback from 2020, we have restructured our classes for One & Two day camps only. Campers do not have to attend “Camp I” to attend Camp II or III. If a camp fills up quickly, and we have a waiting list, we may add another session.
Each camp will be offered one time in June; and then repeated again in July..... and Yes, campers can attend both sessions if they wish. :)
NOTE: participants will be IN nature and in our culinary kitchen so all possible allergens are present, ie grasses, pollen, bees, nuts, dairy, etc. If you as a parent/guardian/grandparent feel there is a possible issue, please, for safety concerns, do not sign up your camper for attendance.
