Farm To Fashion Camp

The Farm to Fashion Camp exposes middle and high school students to the sheep and wool industries through a highly hands-on and interactive camp experience.

This three-and-a-half-day camp will introduce students to the fashion supply chain, sustainable fiber and fashion processes, and sheep husbandry. The camp includes opportunities for campers to interact directly with sheep and sheep farmers, as well as have hands-on experiences with activities such as spinning, dyeing, weaving, and fashion design.

On the last day of the camp, students will travel to visit a working sheep farm in the heart of the Flint Hills.
