Summer Camp in the Gardens 

Summer Camp in the Gardens offers children a unique outdoor experience with themed, hands-on camps and activities tailored to a specific age camper. We make sure the activities are developmentally appropriate, educationally relevant, and most importantly fun! At the Gardens, campers will be able to spend time outdoors, work together with their peers, and learn about relevant environmental subjects through hands-on activities, all while having fun!

Half Day camp schedule: Monday-Friday 8am – 12 pm
