Summer Camps


2018 ECO-EXPLORERS SUMMER CAMPS!

Eco Explorers summer camps are nature-based, experiential, STEAM-centered camps for your young explorer. Camps are available for ages 4-11, with age-specific groups. Quality educators, excellent curricula, and positive outdoor experiences make for the best summer camp ever! With a new theme every week, it’s never the same adventure twice. Your child will love exploring nature with us!

CREATURE CAMP

BUDDING BOTANISTS

Discover the amazing world of plants, pollinators, and their “powers.” Not all plant superheroes wear capes, but they sure do help us! Investigate flowers, bugs, birds, and beyond. Buzzzz!

Cancellation Policy:  The Arboretum reserves the right to cancel any camp session due to insufficient enrollment.  If this occurs, all fees will be refunded.

Refunds will not be given for failure to attend, absence or sick days, or if a child is dismissed due to behavioral issues.

DIRT ALERT
