Summer Break Camps

For Children Entering Grades K–5 in Fall 2017

NYBG is the place to be for kids on summer break! Choose between three different day camps offering playful and creative opportunities for children to explore the world around them using a mix of nature exploration, science activities, group projects, our vast 250 acres, and more. Concurrent sessions are offered for students entering grades K–2 and 3–5 in fall 2017 with content designed specifically for their age and learning level. We balance curiosity-driven free time with content-based activities that incorporate both structured and self-directed learning. And, of course, we make it fun! Sign up for a single week or a series of weeks.

Get Ready for Camp!

We are excited for all of our Adventure Campers to join us for a week of fun! Every day will be packed with entertaining hands-on activities. Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare for camp:

  • Bring a hat, water bottle, and sunscreen for outdoor adventures.
  • Pack two healthy snacks and a lunch—please do not pack food items containing nuts of any kind.
  • A positive attitude! NYBG Camps provide a fun and safe space to meet new friends and explore new ideas
  • Wild Wetlands Camp: Be sure to pack a pair of water shoes or boots, or a second pair of sneakers in case feet get wet while exploring.
