Summer Garden & Farm Camps

 

We are planning to run summer camps online via Zoom through July 10. After July 10, camps will be held in-person with reduced capacity and increased safety health precautions recommended by the Washington State Department of Health. Precautions include: limiting camp group sizes; conducting daily temperature checks; increasing sanitization of surfaces; maximizing outdoor time, staggering activity times, and practicing social distancing to the greatest extent possible. Read our Safety Plan for Summer Camps.

 

Summer Camps

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.
