Garden Explorers Camp for Ages 4-7 (Sold Out)
August 14 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
Monday-Friday, August 14-18, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Budding gardeners will spend the week digging, planting, watering and harvesting fruits and veggies in our Learning Garden. Campers will 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! Join us for a week filled with games, explorations, snack making from the garden and take-home garden projects.

NEW for 2023! Extended Explorations, 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? In this new offering, campers will have the opportunity to spend an extra two hours exploring, playing, and discovering after the regular camp day ends. Activities will be led by an Education staff member and will include games, hikes, and lots of nature discovery in our gardens and beyond.
