Teens

At Wolfe’s Neck, teens get hands-on work experience and agricultural training for a healthy lifestyle, civic participation, and ecological awareness.

Junior counselors (JCs) are an invaluable part of our Farm Camp team, and they’re rock stars around camp.

They’re passionate, mature, and responsible young adults (at least 15 years of age) looking to gain leadership experience while learning about sustainable agriculture and local ecology. Working with their group, JCs spend their days outside assisting with camp activities and encouraging the curiosity of campers.

As a JC you will:

  • Develop leadership skills
  • Build experience for your college applications and resume
  • Have the opportunity to fulfill service requirements

The generous support of the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation has granted Wolfe’s Neck Center the funding to initiate the growth of the Teen Ag Program.  New developments in 2017 include a seed propagation greenhouse, winterizing our high tunnels greenhouses, and perennial fruit production.

What People Are Saying

“The most important thing that my participation in Teen Ag has given me is the assurance that I am a hardworking individual who is capable of creating the positive change I want to see in the world.”

– Lilly Kuhn, 2017 Teen Ag Crew Member

“It really is an incredible program, and it has opened up a whole new career path for me to consider, as well as making me more aware of where my food comes from, and also being more aware of those who do not have reliable access to food, and what is being done to fix that problem.”

– Maya Bradbury, 2017 Teen Ag Crew Member
