NYBG Summer Science camps

Forest Adventure Camp

Help your kids rekindle a love of nature. Through forest hikes, nature explorations, and journaling, campers will experience the wonderful world of our native woodlands.


Children explore NYBG's native forest and compare it others found across the globe. Campers will discover the diversity of forest life through woodland walks, tree investigations, bird watching, outdoor games, and more!

Get Ready For Camp!

We are excited for Science Campers to join us this summer for a week of fun forest discoveries! Every day will be packed with exciting hands-on activities. Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare for Forest Adventure 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
  • 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! Adventure Camps provide each camper with a fun and safe space to meet new friends and explore new ideas
