Instead of a traditional camp, this year we are introducing a whole new way to experience the Garden together through themed activity kits. Adventure Days in the Garden offer the fun of camp for the whole family! Adventure kits are designed to engage all ages in activities that draw attention to nature while exploring unique garden spaces.

For five weeks this summer, families are invited to experience the Garden in new ways through specially designed activity kits. Inspired by camp themes and activities, you will be given the supplies to conduct experiments, make art, and engage with nature. Admission to the Botanic Garden is included for your family on the day of pick-up. Pick up your kit at the Garden Center any day throughout the week, allowing you to explore on your own schedule. Everything you need for a day of outdoor fun, and more to explore at home, adventure kits are yours to keep! We recommend one kit per child.
