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.

Join The HEAL Project for a two-day HARVEST Camp at the San Mateo County School Farm in El Granada. Campers will explore the Fall farm by tasting its bounty, play in the pumpkin patch, and plant seeds for the upcoming year. Sign up today!
