As a new venture, we have begun to introduce healthy eating and growing your own food to the 40+ campers ages 5- 15. Three events were held this year and with more volunteer help, we hope to increase our involvement in future years. We held two Smoothie days where campers tried exotic smoothies with all sorts of fruits and even kale as well as learned simple ways to make yummy smoothies at home. Finally, we held a tomato-growing workshop in which all the campers learned how to grow and care for a tomato plant. Each camper was given a tomato plant ready to take home and plant in their own garden. Many successful gardens have started with that first plant! Thanks to all who have supported this effort.
