Thank You Time Out Kids

3 Mar

Our good friends at Time Out Kids have featured us in their March 2012 Camp Edition, available at newsstands now.

They wrote up a great summary of what our summer camp sets out to accomplish:

Butter Beans Food and Garden Camp

Culinary-minded kids choose from four sessions, each with a different farm-to-table theme—how food is grown, produced, preserved or prepared. All participants take field trips to local gardens, farms and farmers’ markets and “cook” their own lunch almost every day. Other activities might include visiting local chefs and beekeepers, pickling vegetables and learning to compost.

They also included a photograph of our 2011 camper posing in front of a selection of cheeses on our trip to Murray’s cheese!

Speaking of summer camp, we are hosting an open house this coming Sunday, March 4th from 11am-1pm at the Ger-Nis Culinary + Herb Center540 President Street, Suite 2E. We will have samples of a typical homemade summer camp snack, and you will have the chance to meet our summer camp staff, have all of your questions answered, and mingle with like-minded parents. Your children are more than welcome to come too! You can also sign up for camp, and receive an early bird discount!

If you miss us on Sunday, we will be presenting our camp at the American Camp Association fair on Saturday, March 10th from 12pm-3pm, at the Grace Church School.  We look forward to seeing you there!
