An Opportunity to Discover, Inquire, Grow

A Summer Day Camp for Youth

D.I.G. Camp was offered in 2013-2015!

An outdoor summer educational day camp for youth rising into grades 4-6 (Intro Camp) and grades 6-8 (Advanced Camp) offered at the Dickinson College Farm. Dickinson College’s Center for Sustainability Education (CSE), Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM), and Farm are coming together to provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity to area children. D.I.G. campers will gain a better understanding and appreciation of our local resources by participating in hands-on learning experiences connecting them to renewable energy, stream health, sustainable agriculture and culinary discoveries. The camps are designed to foster a love of the outdoors, sense of place, skills in nature journaling and crafts, and practical experience in farming and science.

Campers will Discover why the Yellow Breeches watershed is so unique, Inquire about how to connect local foods and renewable energy and water resources, and Grow as they define what is important in their own lives.

We have a professional staff, our in our third year and serve about 30 youth each summer. References are available upon request.
