Garden Explorers Camp (Ages 4-7) (Sold Out)

August 12 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

We’re sorry this class is not available. Occasionally, we have cancellations throughout the year. If you’d like to hear first when a spot opens, please fill out the form at this link: https://forms.office.com/r/9CGdz6CeiB
This form does not guarantee a spot in the class.


Monday-Friday, August 12-16, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Budding gardeners will spend the week digging, planting, watering, and harvesting fruits and vegetables in our learning garden. We’ll investigate the inner workings of the garden from the ground up and get the real “dirt” on plants, life cycles, composting, garden critters, and more! Sign your campers up for a week filled with games, explorations, garden snack-making, and take-home garden projects. 

Scholarships are available for families with a financial need. To request an application, please email Erika Huber at ehuber@mainegardens.org.


Extended Explorations aftercare

1:30 – 3:30 p.m. every day after camp ends

Does your child want extra time after camp to explore the Children’s Garden, catch frogs, or build a fairy house? Does a later pick-up time work better for you? Campers can spend an extra two hours exploring, playing, and discovering after the regular camp day ends. An Education staff member will lead activities, including games, hikes, and nature discovery in our gardens. To register for this program, add it to your cart when registering for camp.
