2022 Summer Camps

#AppliedSTEM summer camps will be returning to Mezzacello in 2022! After the success of the #UrbanAgTech camps last year, I am happy to announce that four new summer camps will be held at Mezzacello over June and July.

Camps held at Mezzacello are fun and safe. All activities take place outside in the urban farm located in downtown Columbus, OH. In case of rain, there are classrooms, tents, and greenhouses a plenty. In case of sun, there are covered shades, solar panels and windmills as well!

Lunch is NOT provided. Transportation can be arranged for campers to other camps provided by PAST Foundation with a small surcharge.

Each camp is staffed by trained farmers and teachers.
