The Farm-to-Campfire Experience

excerpt from American Camping Association, Inc. 

  ...Camp provides an ideal setting for the full farm-to-table (or campfire!) experience. I fondly recall cooking "stone soup" over the fire as a young camper and later, as a counselor. These experiences undoubtedly contributed to my current passion for home cooking, so I've been thrilled to discover the in-depth cooking and gardening experiences many camps currently offer to help children develop an appreciation for the food they eat every day ...

...Stacey Antine, a registered dietitian who founded the organization HealthBarn USA, "I started HealthBarn in 2005 as a call to action to the downward trend of children's health based on lifestyle," Antine says. HealthBarn offers year-round "farm-to-fork" programming, including summer camps at Abma's Farm in Wyckoff, New Jersey and Hilltop Hanover Farm & Environmental Center in Yorktown Heights, New York. "I believe that hands-on education is an important part of the solution, and a farm is a great place to learn about how to live healthy and create the skills to sustain it!" Antine says.  Click here to read more
