Every summer for the past four years, Harlem Grown has put together an inspiring, impactful, and unforgettable Summer Camp experience for children in our community. In 7 short weeks, we see our campers grow their minds, hearts, and bellies in the healthiest ways possible!
Harlem Grown's Summer Camp is a free, seven-week day camp designed to engage and inspire children to explore the outdoors, become master farmers, taste and create delicious recipes, and lead happy and sustainable lives.
Our campers are able to experience farm to fork first hand, and explore their creativity and innovation through urban agriculture. Beyond harvest and cuisine, our youth visit and engage with our partners to learn about everything from financial literacy to condiment creation! Our impact extends beyond our youth and reaches the families and communities around us.
Our parents speak on the impact they see:
“I’ve never seen [my daughter] so excited about any camp or program. She doesn’t want to do anything else. Because of my daughter, now I eat healthy. She would rather have fruit or water with ice [instead of an icee]...and it’s because of this Harlem Grown.”
“He really feels like [Harlem Grown] is his second home over the summer. It makes a difference how you treat kids and educate them. You [all] are instilling such valuable and fun experiences.”
The impact is real and it goes beyond the plate and the food they're eating.
The truth is, we can't do this work without YOU!
Last year, we raised over $30,000 from individuals to help provide 12 campers with this life-changing summer. This year, we're challenging, you, our supporters to gift 15 campers with this unforgettable experience!
We know our amazing FARMily can get this done! GIVE for our campers, their families, and communities.
$2,500 will sponsor one camer for the full 7-week summer camp.
Any amount can make a difference, though, and here's how you can make an impact:
$1,000 will provide one field trip to a farm outside of NYC for all 50 campers
$500 will cover the cost of 6 cooking lessons for all campers
$120 will supply all the educational materials for one camper
$60 will provide a camper's food for one full week
$40 provide CPR Certificationtraining for camp counselors
