Summer Camps 2014

Summer Camp at the Garden is always an adventure. Each day our campers become scientists as they use their powers of observation in the classroom and on the trail to learn about the world around them. The Garden’s enthusiastic educators encourage exploratory learning in a fun and safe environment. Every day of camp brings new adventures in outdoor experiences, children’s literature, free choice learning, snack, games, art projects and more! Snacks are provided. Campers must bring their own sack lunch.

The students will round off this amazing week with a trip to the Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area to collect real-world data that will be used by scientists from around the world! Two classes, limited to 14 campers per class.
