Summer camps at 21 Acres are a safe and healthy place for youth to learn about and enjoy the beauty of a working farm! Come have fun and build community while exploring the outdoors.


Farm by Design is for teens ready to explore the world of garden design.

We will visit local farms, harvest fruits and vegetables from the 21 Acres Farm and enjoy the summer sun! This is the perfect camp for young farmers in training or for anyone interested in landscape design.


Our Farm by Design camp was so popular last year that we have decided to extend it to two weeks. Please note that Farm by Design will run from June 25-29th then take a gap week for 4th of July week and pick up again starting the 9th-13th of July.

Save the Date for the annual celebration honoring the return of migrating salmon to spawn in creeks and streams throughout the Puyallup Watershed! This year's event will be held at DeCoursey Park in Puyallup, which is located next to Clarks Creek, a popular spawning stream that leads to the WDFW Puyallup Historic Hatchery, which will be under construction this year.


This is a free family-oriented event with lots of activities or kids and families. The event is scheduled to coincide with fall salmon migration, so if we're lucky we'll get to see some, and we'll have creek side talks and tours led by fish biologists. There will be environmentally-themed games and activities for all ages, food, and music.


This event is organized by the Puyallup River Watershed Council, Puyallup Historic Hatchery Foundation, and WRIA 10/12 Lead Entity.


The event is from 11am-3pm on Saturday, October 6, 2018.
