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. Nature 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, July 14-18
Nature Explorers Camp (ages 9-13)
When:   9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Where: Education Center and grounds (drop-off and pick-up children in the Education Center)
Price:    $185 members, $222 non-members

Kids who love exploring the great outdoors, learning new outdoor skills, and geocaching, will LOVE Nature Explorers Camp! Explorers will expand their knowledge of the natural world through an inquiry-based week of outdoor activities utilizing both old and new methods of nature exploration, including the use of technology. We’ll put our newly learned skills to use as we branch out into new areas of the Gardens’ 248 acres, hiking to its more “wild” parts as we investigate the remnants of an old homestead and discover life on the shore of a tidal river and beyond.  We’ll even spend a morning kayaking around the Back River with an experienced guide as we explore life in and around this saltwater habitat. Campers will work together to create a series of geocaches for all visitors of the Gardens to enjoy as a culminating project of a fun-filled, skill-building week!
