NYBG Summer
Science Camps


NYBG is the place to be for kids on summer break! Choose between three different day camps full of adventure, discovery, and creativity. This year's lineup offers concurrent sessions for students entering grades K–2 and 3–5 in fall 2016. 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!
