AgBio Discovery Camps

The AgBio Discovery Camps offer a fun, hands-on introduction to modern agriculture for campers from both urban and rural backgrounds.

Would you like to learn the science of making ice cream? Have you ever wanted to care for a piglet and chickens? In this highly interactive camp, students will learn just how fun agriculture can be!

Campers are divided into two categories (grades refer to the year the student will be entering in the Fall):
