This summer, young children can sprout into Urban Adamah campers during our Sprouts week! Sprouts campers enjoy their day exploring our working organic farm and learning how to be great helpers to the crops, animals and each other.

Special features of Sprouts week:

•  Farm-to-fork harvesting and cooking for young chefs
•  Caring for animals: goats, chickens, worms and more
•  Sensory-rich activities including mud-building, bug hunts, and nature crafts
•  Total relaxation time with stories, movement and music in the yurt
