WELCOME TO FARM'S 2016 SUMMER CAMP INFO

We at FARM are excited to launch our first lineup of summer camps for middle/high-schoolers at San Diego's amazing Liberty Station! Our goal with the camps is to give students the best mix of learning and fun...they don't want mind-numbing instruction while on break, you don't want them drooling on the couch all summer. FARM will entertain and educate in a way that keeps everyone smiling.
