Garden Camps

“Neither he that planteth, nor she that watereth,
but God who provides the increase!”

Founded in 1997, the John Leake Memorial Garden at Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church (CHPC) has been the site for week-long gardening day camps during the summer since 2002. Children ages 7-14 attend the week-long day camps that run Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Campers enjoy story-telling, gardening work of all kinds, food processing (grinding corn), outdoor games, harvesting, cooking, canning (hot salsa), projects, baking (rhubarb pie, corn bread), cleaning, team work, hiking, and swimming.
