A deliciously engaging course where students get to plant, care for, and harvest food from Usdan’s fruit and vegetable gardens. Students also care for the camp’s pet chickens and collect their eggs. Partnering with Olafur Eliasson's Little Sun, this course will also teach students to use unconventional materials to create sustainable solutions and environmentally-focused art and design. Students will use materials such as light, recycled and found objects. In past years, students worked as a team to make a wind powered air conditioner, a bike powered lamp and a sun clock. Additional fee of $550 for 7 weeks, $325 for 4 weeks, and $225 for 3 weeks.
