Garden Explorers campers record observations about flowers during a scavenger hunt

At Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, children can learn about plants and wildlife in spectacular settings including the two-acre Bibby and Harold Alfond Children’s Garden. Garden Explorers Camp is one of many day-camp programs we’re offering in 2014 for children in several age groups. Since numbers are limited, we suggest signing up as soon as possible.

Monday-Friday, August 11-15
Garden Explorers Camp (ages 6-8)
When:   12:30-4:00 p.m.
Where: Education Center and grounds (drop-off and pick-up children in the Education Center)
Price:    $125 members, $150 nonmembers

Budding gardeners will spend the week digging, planting, watering and harvesting, as they learn how to care for our Learning Garden and greenhouse. We’ll investigate the inner workings of a garden from the ground up and get the real “dirt” on plants and their life cycle, composting, garden critters and more!  Join us for a week filled with new observations, experiments, taste tests, games and take-home garden projects.  In celebration of this year’s theme at the Gardens, this camp will have a special emphasis on pollinators and the important role they play in our garden.

New for 2014: Parents-we listened to your requests and have lengthened the daily camp session by an hour.
