Enrollment for summer camp

Bakersfield, CA (April 18, 2022)  Enrollment is open for the  Edible Schoolyard Kern County (ESYKC) 2022 Summer Camp program. ESYKC will accept students until they reach capacity. Summer Camp combines ESYKC’s hands-on learning environment in garden and kitchen classrooms with an unmatched educational experience that integrates food cultivation, nutrition and edible education.

“I love watching our students come alive in the kitchen,” said ESYKC Program Director Dylan Wilson. “There’s nothing like the inspiration and discovery in their eyes as they slice, mix and cook using ingredients they’ve helped grow and harvest.”

Families can enroll their students in their choice of three Summer Camp sessions. Each session is open to students who will be enrolled in second through sixth grade in Fall 2022. Each session includes five days of half-day instruction:

  • Session 1: Monday, June 6 – Friday, June 10, 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
  • Session 2 : Monday, June 13 – Friday, June 17, 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
  • Session 3: Monday, June 20 – Friday, June 24, 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Thanks to the generous support of Dignity Health, Bakersfield, scholarships for Summer Camp were made available to students selected by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County.

An unparalleled, hands-on learning experience

Outdoors, students learn the basics of gardening and the seed-to-table cycle in the Garden Classroom. Campers also spend time indoors in the Kitchen Classroom where they learn to cook recipes that use fresh produce from the garden.
