Kids Summer Camp--Camp Green Star
First Step Renew, LLC is offering a kids summer camp--Camp Green Star—to teach kids, ages 7-13, about sustainability and urban agriculture. The camp is a secular (non-religious) camp held at Madison Christian Community on Old Sauk Road in Madison. In Camp Green Star’s outdoor classroom, kids will gain hands-on experience with gardening and raising chickens. They will also learn about bees, prairies, composting, permaculture, conserving water and energy, and making butter and soft cheese. The camp is a half-day camp, with four one-week sessions, from mid July to mid August. Camp fees are $150 per session, with a $10 discount for additional kids from the same family.
