Over the River and Through the Woods NEW

4 to 5 year-olds

July 28 Aug 1, 9 am noon

Go on a Garden adventure! As we explore off the beaten paths, campers will hop boulders across a creek, follow maps to Garden treasure, dissect plants that eat insects, and use all five senses to make exciting new discoveries.



4 to 5 year-olds

August 4 - 8, 9 am – noon

As we explore a wide range of habitats, campers discover insects, reptiles, fish, birds, and invertebrates! We will see through insect eyes, plant a mini-butterfly garden, and harvest “rabbit food” to taste in the Garden.



Rising 3rd and 4th grades

August 11 August 15, 9am noon

Explore meadows, forests and gardens seeking out magical yet real properties of flowers, roots, leaves and seeds that are used for flavoring, healing and art. Discover weeds that shine like jewels, plants that move as if tickled, and seeds that inspire love in all those that look upon them. We'll even use plants to play a game of botanical quidditch!
