Urban Land Scout Camp!

Great news! The Urban Land Scouts are partnering with Schools of Influence Education Foundation to present an exciting new project:

Urban Land Scout Camp 
at CAC Beardsley Community Farm

The camp will run Monday through Friday, from 7:30 am - 12:30 pm for three sessions (July 11th - 15th, July 18th - 22nd, and July 25th - 29th) and will be available at no cost to rising 5th, 6th, and 7th graders from the Knox County schools listed below (UPDATE: We are opening application to all 5th, 6th, and 7th grade students living in Knox County.)

Each day we will gather together for healthy meals, farm chores, art making, and earning a different Urban Land Scout badge. We hope to host twenty students each session. If you know a young person (or a parent of a young person) at any of the schools below who might enjoy Urban Land Scout Camp, please put them in touch with us or print out this application and give them a copy. Thanks for helping us spread the word. We will be accepting applications until June 16th. There will be a mandatory meeting and Open House at Beardsley Farm on June 16th for accepted campers and their parents.

Lastly and most importantly, this camp is made possible at no cost through the generous donations of local businesses as well as through the generosity of individuals in our community. This project is not yet fully funded and is contingent on having that funding before we can confirm with our campers. We need any and all financial support you can offer. If you’ve ever enjoyed summer camp or the great work at CAC Beardsley Community Farm, we hope you’ll consider making a donation today. All donations are tax deductible. You can join the ranks of the Tomato Head, Cruze Dairy Farm, and Community Television of Knoxville, to name a few of our sponsors.

You can click on the button below to make your tax-deductible donation (to Schools of Influence Education Foundation) in support of Urban Land Scout Camp. 

If making a donation online isn't your thing, mark your calendar to attend our camp fundraiser Sunday, May 15th, from 6-9 pm at the Birdhouse (800 N. 4th Ave.) A suggested donation of $5 -10 gets you in the door for fine beverages, nice snacks, and good company.
