After School Program & Summer Camp
The Stop's After School Program at The Green Barn engages children aged 8 to 12 (grades 3 to 6) in fun, hands-on activities that teach skills necessary to grow, cook and select healthy food and encourage positive attitudes towards healthy eating. While cooking and growing activities are central to the program, children also participate in a range of other activities that support positive development, including arts, games, homework help and field trips.
ASP hours and location: Monday through Wednesday, 3:30 to 6:00 p.m., at The Stop's Green Barn.

• March Break Camp (kids 8 to 12): TBD
• Summer Food Camp (kids 8 to 12): The Stop's summer food camp is a fun, active and engaging day camp for kids ages 8 to 12. Campers are encouraged to learn about cooking and growing food through fun and engaging activities held in The Stop's kitchen and gardens. By engaging in hands-on learning activities, campers increase their food skills and develop and openness to trying new foods. Registration is mandatory and spaces are limited. Priority will be given to low-income families. The Summer Food Camp will run for two weeks in summer 2012: July 16 to July 20 and July 30 to August 3.
• Graduate Program: An opportunity for children who have previously participated in the ASP to maintain and advance the food skills they have developed with us. This program runs on Thursdays from 3:30 - 6 pm from September to June.
