Harlem Grown SUMMER CAMP

Harlem Grown’s Summer Camp is a seven-week program designed to engage and inspire children to explore the outdoors, become master gardeners, taste and create delicious recipes, and lead healthier lives.

Campers participate in daily farming activities, learning how to grow food from seed to harvest, and prepare and eat the fruits of their bounty. Campers explore nature, sustainability, and food  through weekly themed activities, including cooking, fitness, arts and crafts, science experiments, service projects, and field trips. All produce grown by the campers is taken home to their families or given to other members of the community, free of charge.



Apply now for our 2017 summer day camp for children aged 7 to 14. Our camp is free of charge for families who qualify for the free or reduced school lunch program, with sliding scale pricing for other families. Due to high demand, space is limited. Please download and submit an application by April 15 to be added to our lottery.  Completed applications should be mailed or delivered to our office at 127 West 127 Street, #201; New York, NY 10027. Families will be notified if their child receives a spot in our summer camp by May 1.
