Outdoor Classroom

Join us on teacher workdays, spring break and all summer for fun, experiential garden adventures!  Each camp matches the season and is full of garden-centric games, exploration and art, music and cooking.  Activities are suitable for children having completed kindergarten through completed fourth grade unless otherwise noted. 

Our camps are primarily outside, if the weather allows.

  • Registration is required for all camps.

  • Scholarships are available. 

  • A 10 percent discount is offered with a family membership to The Gardens.

  • Camp is held outdoors, so children should be dressed for the weather, bring water and wear sunscreen and a hat (if preferred). 

  • The Gardens does not provide meals so please pack a lunch and two snacks.  

Children may be dropped off as early as 8:30 a.m. and picked up as late as 4:30 p.m., but camp programming will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The Gardens close at 5 p.m.
