Summer Garden & Farm Camps

Summer Camps

With more than three months until the first day of camp, we are hoping to hold summer camps in their regular format. If social distancing measures are still in place, we will be offering refunds for camp ticket or opportunities to transfer ticket to other classes and camps during the next school year. We encourage you to book your spot now! To read about other actions we are taking to keep our community safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19, go here.


Tilth Alliance has been offering children’s garden education for more than three decades. We provide a positive, structured and educational outdoor learning environment. Many kids return year after year to experience the variety of opportunities at various ages and we love seeing returning campers, as well as meeting new ones!

Kids dig our summer farm and garden camps! We're excited to be part of your family's summer experience. This year, we're happy to be able to offer more camps at our North Seattle location (Wallingford, Good Shepherd Center) and SE Seattle location (Rainier Beach, Rainier Beach Urban Farm & Wetland). Check out the newly expanded summer camp schedule below.
