The HEAL Project camps are packed with outdoor learning activities that inspire a love of nature, an appreciation of healthy food, and respect for our agricultural heritage.

Campers will plant, harvest, cook, hike, discover, laugh and learn during our farm based camps. Through discovering the wonder of the natural world around us, campers build a deeper connection to nature, themselves and each other.


SUMMER CAMP 2019

Monday - Friday    

9am -3pm Friday Celebration: 2:15pm 

Children ages 6-11

$275 per child   $25 Sibling Discount

All of our camps take place at the San Mateo County School Farm in El Granada. Join The HEAL Project staff and Junior Leaders in a week of farming, crafting, cooking, and adventuring. Our camps explore the fields when they are most alive with summer crops, flowers, and imagination. All camps have an open house Friday afternoon where parents and families are invited onto the farm to see all their campers have done that week.

This was their 3rd year of camp and they love it each time. The learning they receive from the excellent staff, the hands on food experience and farming is so incredible for them”
