The Katie's Krops Camp is an immersive growing experience for our young Katie's Krops Growers from across the country. Once a year, over the summer, upwards of 10 young Katie's Krops growers are invited to travel to South Carolina and the farm of WP Rawl, our camp sponsor. WP Rawl is a family-owned and operated farm that specializes in leafy greens and other seasonal vegetables across the United States such as Nature's Greens® and Versatile Veggies®. Their generosity makes this all-expenses-paid camp possible. There is no charge for the campers or the chaperones.
During the course of the camp, our growers come together and learn new and creative growing techniques, host a service project, create lasting friendships with fellow growers, receive valuable information on food safety, tour the impressive Rawl farm and so much more.
It has always been Katie's dream to create a sustainable solution to hunger by creating a young family of growers. This camp is an opportunity to bring the Katie's Krops growers together, to learn new skills, to make new friends and grow the dream that is Katie's Krops.
The 2016 Katie's Krops Camp will be held June 27th to June 29th. Katie's Krops Camp is exclusively for our young Katie's Krops growers and is not open to the general public. To become a Katie's Krops Grower you must apply for a grant from Katie's Krops. Our next grant cycle will open in October of 2016 for the 2017 growing season.
Thank you to our wonderful friends at WP Rawl for making this camp possible!
