2nd session of Urban Farm Summer Camp kicks off

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The second session of Matthew 25's Urban Farm Summer Camp has kicked off.

The camp is for students who have completed third, fourth or fifth grades who want to explore local foods and spend a week at an urban farm right in Cedar Rapids.

The camp offers hands-on activities allowing participants to dive in, get their hands dirty, and have fun while learning about where food comes from.

Activities will include art on the farm, learning about healthy soils, field trips, and cooking farm-fresh foods that participants harvest themselves.

The week-long day camps will run Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. August 11 - 15.

Cost of the camp is $160, which includes activities, field trip transportation, a camp T-shirt, and daily snacks.

The first session was held June 16 - 20.
