  1. Hey Y’all! This is Jen Myzel Swanson aka Dragonfly, co-founder of the original Camp Kumquat. It’s so cool to see how Camp Kumquat is evolving over the years, and I am so glad to see that the Burning Kumquat is still thriving and that this value of providing free food and knowledge and love to the surrounding community seems alive and well. Bless!

    I think the end date listed above is incorrect for session one.

    What are the hours for camp this year? My older son loved this camp and now his little brother gets to experience it.

    What is the cost for this camp? Is it offered every year? Planning for next summer.

      Hi Carrie, the camp is offered free of charge for all those who apply. However, we suggest a donation of anything up to $50 to cover the costs of supplies, etc.. Thank you for your interest!
