Camp Farm On! - Register online
July 8 – 12, 2013
For students entering grades 9-12 in fall 2013
Taconic Hills High School
Campers will learn about the farming community and business opportunities in the local food system. They will meet and work with innovative business owners and will work in teams to develop “value-added” business models that support local farms. They will then pitch their business models to a panel of venture capitalists including a former NBA star, a food channel celebrity and the vice president of a very well-known company.
Space is limited to 20 campers, and all campers must be recommended by a teacher or counselor to be considered. Tuition is provided by scholarships from the Northeast Farm Credit, Hudson Valley Bounty and Friends of the Farmer.
For all camps:
• A recommendation from a teacher or school counselor is required.
• When pre-registering a child for the scholarship and camp, parents or guardians must be able to provide the email address of the teacher or counselor making the recommendation.
Students and their parents/guardians provide their own lunches and transportation to the camps. If the number of applicants exceeds a camp’s capacity, selection will be guided by educators’ recommendations and each student’s ability to benefit from the experience. Enrollment may be limited to one camp if camps reach capacity.
The Summer Camps are sponsored by the Tech Valley Career Pathways Consortium through funding provided by the federal Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Improvement Act of 2006 and the New York State Education Department.
