Eckert's Summer Kid's Cooking Camp in Belleville IS BACK! Last summer's camp was a HUGE success and we are looking forward to another successful camp this summer! For this camp, we will be picking produce every day from the farm to use in our delicious recipes back in our cooking classroom. Kids will ride to the fields each day where they will learn growing and harvesting tips about our crops. Back in the classroom we will make lunch and a few treats to take home throughout the week. Each day will focus on one of the following crops grown at Eckert's: blackberries, veggies, herbs, and peaches. Come ready to hand-pick and cook with the freshest, locally-grown ingredients around! This camp is for kids between the ages of 7 - 11. (Kids will take home $5 - $10 in fresh picked produce per day!)

**Additional Information**

Students should bring a water bottle marked with their name. Students should wear sunscreen, cool clothing and closed toe shoes (no sandals or flip flops). We are suggesting that parents drop off their child since adult space is limited in the classroom. We will have a parent sign each child in and out, daily. If a different adult is picking up the child, we must have the parent's written authorization, in advance, Lunch will be served at camp every day.
