NYBG Summer Camps


NYBG is excited for the return of summer camp programs with a brand new camp themed Wildlife Discoveries. Choose between four different day camps full of adventure, discovery, and creativity. This year's lineup offers concurrent sessions for 5-7 year-olds and 8-10 year-olds. You can also sign-up for a single week or a series of weeks. Each of our programs offers playful and creative opportunities for children to explore the world around them using a mix of nature exploration, science activities, art, group projects, our vast 250 acres, and more. 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!
