Field trips are for students in grades K-5 and are offered to groups with a maximum of 35 students. The cost per trip is $150. Scholarship funds are available for those who qualify. Our field trip season begins in April and runs through mid-November.
2017 summer farm camps will be held in July and August. At camp children spend a week exploring the 18 acre Sauvie Island Organics farm and adjacent grounds of Metro’s Howell Territorial Park. Each day at camp will be a new adventure, focusing on one area of the Sauvie Island Center curriculum. Sauvie Island Center’s education staff will guide campers through exploration activities and a daily nature journaling exercise. In addition, campers will gather produce from our Grow Lunch Garden and use their harvest to prepare fresh, tasty supplements to their own sack lunches (which should include bottled water). Other activities include nature-themed arts and crafts projects and group games. Farm camp is an outdoor experience. Children will be outside all day, everyday soaking up the fresh air and sunshine. Register here for summer camp.
