barterfest

Barterfest is an Eden Village Camp classic! Every summer campers spend weeks creating items fully from scratch to share with each other at Barterfest. While we can’t gather together on the dinner field to set up our stands and barter with one another, we can carry on the tradition of crafting from scratch and sharing our creations with each other! 

This summer we’re organizing Barterfest through the mail! Sign up to receive the name and address of another camper- you’ll send them something you make, and in turn you’ll receive a surprise yourself!

Last day to sign up for Barterfest is July 14th.

b'emet

In our newest summer program, B’Emet (in truth), we’re meeting teens at the intersection of our core values to grapple with the shifting food system in our communities and beyond. We’ll deepen our teen community and empower one another to re-imagine how we feed ourselves, envisioning a roadmap to a healthier food system, society, and planet. 

Join us as we learn together through conducting an investigative journalism project, develop a story, and share it with camp on the Radio Show!

Only available for rising 10th and 11th graders.

Registration Required: closes June 19th.

B’Emet will be meeting Mondays and Thursdays from 2:30-4:00, June 29th – July 16th.

tuesdays with teens

Hang out with your camp friends, learn something new, and be inspired by our very own Eden Village teens! Every Tuesday, a small group of Eden Village teens will lead a series of live chuggim over zoom.

Sign up here by June 19th if you’re a teen interested in leading a chug!
