Activities and Summer Schedule

We purposefully chose “Stewardship Camp” as a guiding principle for our young campers. After just one summer we hope they will leave here with a renewed sense of responsibility towards, and connection, with the earth.

  • Summer Schedule
    • Camp is held Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 3:00pm
      • June 20-24: Farm Week
      • June 27-July 1: Creek Week
      • July 4-8: NO CAMP
      • July 11-15: Forest Week
      • July 18-22: An additional week of camp may be added if there is enough interest
  • Age Groups
    • We will be accepting campers ages 4-11, divided into two age groups
      • “Littles”:  Ages 4-7
      • “Bigs”: Ages 8-11
  • Supervision: Each age group will be accompanied by at least one lead teacher at all times, in addition to Interns (ages 16+) and CIT’s (Counselors in Training, ages 12-15)
    • If you are interested in being a CIT or an Intern, we encourage you to apply! Email us at canecreekstewardship@gmail.com with a resume and/or brief introduction.
