Please note that Dirt to Dish is temporarily suspended for Summer 2021 due to public health mandates related to COVID-19. We look forward to bringing back this signature program when able.
What do executive chefs from Vespertine and Destroyer, SUR, Katsuya, Lodge Bread, Hayseed BBQ, Ford’s Filling Station, Guerilla Tacos, and Cabbage Patch have in common?
They have all worked hands-on with the summer campers at Turning Point School to create incredible, tasty, and healthy food.
Turning Point’s signature Dirt to Dish program introduces the basic principles of sustainable food by planting seeds, nurturing the growing seedlings, and harvesting ripe fruits and vegetables for healthy snacks. Campers get to explore, work, and dig in the school’s urban garden to harvest the day’s bounty and create healthy and tasty snacks for their fellow campers. We collaborate with local farmers and chefs who share their passion, expertise, and culinary creations with our campers.
At Turning Point Summer Camp, we’re teaching that dirt-to-dish means striving for a shorter distance between the farm and the home, and that if we eat seasonally, during natural harvest cycles, our food will be fresh, ripe, healthy, and delicious.
The school year has ended, but the fun has just begun! Kick off your summer with our special five-day Start-of-Summer Camp for Kindergarten – Grade 8 students, run entirely by our veteran summer camp team.
KINDERGARTEN – Grade 8

Start-of-Summer Camp is open to current 2020-21 school year students only.
From birth to age 5, a child’s brain develops more than at any other time in life. Preschoolers’ brains definitely do not “hit pause” during the summer months! We offer summer-long opportunities for your preschooler/Pre-K child to continue to explore their world in a nurturing and stimulating environment, under the guidance of full-time teachers who are experts in early childhood development.

For students who will be starting in the Early Childhood Division in the fall, our summer programs offer an excellent bridge to the regular school year.
We create many opportunities to ensure our newest campers feel safe, supported, and appropriately challenged as they begin their school journey, make new friends, and continue to feed their curious minds.
At Steve & Kate’s Camp, kids take chances and take charge, shaping their day, their way. More choices and fewer expectations create more possibilities, more self-trust, and less self-doubt. Steve and Kate’s is hosted on the Turning Point campus and is open to children ages 4-12 from anywhere in the community (including current and incoming Turning Point students).

Campers will choose interest-based, pod-like groups, where they can immerse themselves in activities or projects with an emphasis that speaks to their tastes. These interest groups include sewing, building, performing arts, coding/gaming, sports & recreation, or a mix of everything!
Within these groups, campers decide what they want to do, and for how long. Whether they’re spending the day sampling everything or honing in on a specific skill, one thing is for sure: kids are in control.
Campers will also have the opportunity to enjoy socially distanced indoor and outdoor recreation, performances, games, inflatables, and a circuit of rotating activities.
There are also plenty of perks for parents. Lunch and snacks are included daily, and any unused Day Passes will be automatically refunded in full at the end of summer.
3, 2, 1…. FUN! Our Back-to-School camp offers students in Preschool – Grade 8 a chance to celebrate summer, connect with new friends and old, and hit the ground running in the new school year.
