The Summer Farm-to-Plate Camp returned to SUNY Cobleskill this year as the campus welcomed children ages 6 to 10 for an educational experience highlighting all of the pieces and processes of the modern food system. A full roster of 12 campers attended the week-long camp from July 18 through 22.
Campers got hands-on at SUNY Cobleskill’s farm and food facilities, learning about animal and plant science and participating in exciting food science experiences such as making butter.
The camp is a collaboration between the College’s Early Childhood Studies and Agricultural Business Management programs. Camp activities were led by Dr. Carol Morris, associate professor of Early Childhood and Psychology, and Dr. Mahla Zare, assistant professor of Agriculture and Food Management.
