Kids Connection

The Kid’s Connection booth is open every week from 3-7 offering free crafts and activities that focus on nutrition, farming, the environment, physical activity and gardening. Each week, we feature a different food or farm related craft, as well as games and books. In our partnership with the Camas Library we will give you a sticker, tattoo or bookmark when you show us that you’ve signed up for the library’s summer reading program!

Kids 3-11, don’t forget to register for Produce Pals! Each week, after completing an engaging activity, receive a $2 token of your very own to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. Yummy fun, for everyone! Produce Pals tokens are distributed from 3-7, in the Kid’s Connection booth
