Farm Camp Scholarships

Arcadia has made the difficult decision to cancel Farm Camp this year. This is not a decision that we take lightly, but do so in the best interest of keeping your children and our staff healthy and safe.

In the meantime, please keep up to date with our Arcadia COVID-19 Response page, as well as our compiled list of at-home activities and lessons.

2018 Farm Camp Impact Report

At Arcadia Farm Camp, we want to give all kids the opportunity to find out where their food comes from. Through our Scholarship Fund, we provide about a quarter of our campers each summer with full or partial Scholarships to attend Farm Camp. We work closely with a number of Community Partners in the area right around the Farm in Alexandria and in Washington D.C. to connect with families who qualify by income level for the Scholarship Program. The following information is in English, then repeated in Spanish.
