Summer Programs for Teens

Summer camps are a beautiful thing, especially when they align with your values and you feel like you designed the curriculum yourself. Land’s Sake is a wonderful place that has offering for all ages. My children both enrolled in Green Power last year (as did at least a dozen of their friends) and it is fantastic!

Green Power: ages 13 to 17 

  • For 13 through 17 year olds
  • Date July 8 – August. 23, 2013; Monday through Friday each week, 8:30am-3:30pm**
  • Cost: $400/week; Land’s Sake Family Level Members and above receive a 10% discount, all Members receive a multi-week discount
  • Students are offered a share of the profit based on their performance and attitude each day.

The Green Power Summer Youth Program at Land’s Sake farm is focused on learning about sustainable agriculture, food justice, and community through hard work.  This work includes weeding, planting and harvesting on our organic farm, leading farm tours, maintaining our education garden, community service and cooking a community meal.  In addition to being a great learning opportunity, Green Power teaches the value of meaningful work by giving participants the chance to earn a stipend from the work they do at the farm.  Join Land’s Sake and work hard while having fun!

Student Stipend & Rules: Students are offered a share of the profit generated by the sale of produce at the Land’s Sake farm stand based on quality of their work through week. Land’s Sake reserves the right to drop a participant from the program if he/she is not contributing in a positive manner and placing an unnecessary burden on the other students and staff.

The Green Power program provides teens with the opportunity to grow food, care for animals, mentor younger children, volunteer in the community, cook fresh food, work hard and have fun!
