Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our most recent RFC Camp was in the summer of 2019. RFC Camp ran from June 17 through June 28. Our campers had a blast going on field trips to Ciné, Rush Athens Trampoline Park, UGArden, Sandy Creek Nature Center, Active Climbing, Sweet Olive Farm, and more fun places around Athens! They learned about farming and gardening and loved hanging out with the chickens at the West Broad Garden. Most importantly, they learned new ways to conserve, empower, and sustain communities through food, gardening, and a love for nature. We couldn’t have asked for a better group of campers!
