Welcome to Farm to School of Park County!

Register for Farm to School Summer Camp Waitlist!

Summer Camp Waitlist Registration Form

While we are sad to not be in the classrooms, gardens and cafeterias with our students, we are planning a summer camp full of growing vegetables, cooking healthy snacks, and learning about where food comes from.  We hope camp will continue this year, and we know YOU do, too.

To save your spot, please join our waitlist.  As soon as we know for sure that we are able to safely provide camp this year, we will email you directly. Registration confirmation and payment will be required within 48 hours of receiving the confirmation email.   

Complete one form per child, please.
