Spring Break Camp is a nature-based day camp, modeled after our award-winning environmental education program, In Our Own Backyard (IOOBY). Spring break campers will learn and play while exploring the rich environment of Preston Farm and Winery. The 125-acre family farm is nestled between a meandering salmon-spawning stream and a sleepy stretch of former wagon trail. The Preston family has stewarded the land for the past 45 years and created a diversified farm including vineyards, vegetables, fruit and olive trees, grain, and pastured livestock. 

Grounded in youth-centered discovery, campers will learn about organic farming as we plant, harvest, and discover the amazing biodiversity of life on the farm and in the streams that make this place so unique. We will learn about the unique life cycles of plants and animals, study beneficial insects, and play nature games in the fields and orchards. At the heart of our camp is the opportunity for every camper to build memorable connections with the land, a foundation for a healthy community that deeply values caring for each other and the land.  


El Campamento de Primavera es un programa de día, inspirado en nuestro galardonado programa de educación ambiental, In Our Own Backyard (IOOBY). Los estudiantes aprenderán y jugarán mientras exploran Preston Farm and Winery. La granja de 125 acres está ubicada entre un arroyo que es zona de desove de salmón y un tramo de camino de carreteras antiguo. La familia Preston ha administrado la tierra durante los últimos 45 años para crear una granja diversa que incluye viñedos, hortalizas, árboles frutales y olivos, granos y ganado. 

El campamento está basado en enseñanzas que centran a los estudiantes y sus descubrimientos. Los estudiantes aprenderán sobre la agricultura orgánica mientras plantamos, cosechamos y descubrimos la asombrosa biodiversidad en los huertos que hacen a este lugar tan único. Aprenderemos acerca de los ciclos de vida de las plantas y los animales, y estudiaremos insectos beneficiosos. Jugaremos juegos de naturaleza en los campos y huertos.  La meta de nuestro programa es ofrecer la oportunidad para que cada estudiante construya conexiones memorables con la tierra, lo cual es una base para una comunidad saludable que valore profundamente el cuidado de los demás y de la tierra.
