Nature Adventure Camp for Ages 4-6
July 17 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
Monday-Friday, July 17-21, 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Our summer nature camps provide fun and enriching opportunities for young people to learn about the natural world. Exploration-filled activities will take us on adventures throughout the Gardens and surrounding forests as we investigate bugs, birds, food chains, mammals, sun power, and much more. Through observations, games, stories, experiments, and nature-related projects, campers will be well on their way to becoming young naturalists by the end of the week!

NEW for 2023! Optional 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. This option will be available at checkout.
