Members: $175; Non-Members: $200
Education Department, Mounts Botanical Garden
Your children will discover the special places and magical spaces of Mounts Botanical Garden!
Our Nature Camp offers playful and creative opportunities for children to explore the world around. Participating Pirates will learn to think like a horticulturist and observe like an artist throughout this week-long nature program. Campers will gather garden materials for investigation and discovery, learn about engineering in nature, create art projects, explore a Bamboo Forest, and go birding!
Each day will be filled with outdoor explorations, hands-on activities, and time to create art in the garden. This year’s lineup offers sessions for Kindergarteners through Fifth Graders. We balance curiosity-driven free time with garden science activities to instill a sense of awe and wonder in our subtropical botanical oasis!
