This form does not guarantee a spot in the class.


Monday-Friday, August 5-9, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Bug lovers unite as we scour the garden, woods, and ponds in search of the Gardens’ tiniest residents. Campers will learn about insect life cycles, their role in nature, and the secrets of their survival through activities, observations, and a special visit with our resident entomologist. We’ll also spend time investigating the lives of caterpillars, butterflies, and bees in our on-site exhibits. Creepy crawly fanatics will love this camp!

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.
