Welcome Class of 2027!
Harvest is a Camp Yale Program for students excited about food, farming, and community. During Harvest, groups of Yale College students spend a few days farming and camping on sustainably stewarded land across the state. Participants experience all aspects of farm life, from harvesting fruits to planting fall crops, to cooking and processing fresh produce. Afternoons and evenings might find students cooling off in a pond, playing volleyball, or sharing s’mores around a campfire. H.A.R.V.E.S.T. (Having A Really Very Excellent Super Time) trips truly live up to their name, offering a great opportunity for students to enjoy the outdoors, learn about agriculture in Connecticut, and make a close group of friends before the start of Yale. Harvest is designed for first-year and transfer students of all backgrounds; no farming experience is necessary.
Harvest will begin the evening of Tuesday, August 22 and culminate on Saturday, August 26.
Harvest is run by the Yale Sustainable Food Program. For more information, please email the student coordinators at email@example.com.
