A Day Camp for Hungry Minds

At Butter Beans, kids ages 4 to 12 hit rooftop farms, make ice cream and create cookbooks.

Forget nursery rhymes—kids today want to know “how does your garden grow.” And now there’s a day camp where they can find out: Butter Beans. Kids ages 4 to 12 hit rooftop farms, make ice cream and preserves, visit local beehives (yes, mom, they’ll wear suits) and create cookbooks. Founder Felicia Desrosiers, a holistic nutrition counselor, says the camp aims “to inspire the next generation of Alice Waters, Jamie Olivers and Michelle Obamas.” Two-week sessions run throughout July and August.
