It’s my opinion that kids should be engaged in fun outdoor, active, eco-minded activities all summer long. Summer camp is a great way to make sure this happens. Luckily, if you live in PDX, I just found out that you can enter to win a week’s worth of camp for your favorite kiddo.
All you have to do to enter is vote for your favorite local summer camps in various categories. This enters you into a drawing where you can win a FREE week of Zenger Farms Cooking Camp, from the 61 Organic Valley farmer-owners in the Pacific Northwest.
This is an awesome contest. Zenger Farms is actually right down the road from me, so I’ll be entering for sure. This farm is a working urban farm that “Models, promotes and educates about sustainable food systems, environmental stewardship, community development and access to good food for all.”
They have many summer camp opportunities for kids of all ages, though they have more camps for kids under 6th grade. They also offer financial aid scholarships.
