About

Children become young naturalists on a weeklong investigation of the fauna amongst the flora of the 250-acre site. Nature hikes and hands-on activities allow children to discover creatures that call the Garden's unique habitats home.

Get Ready For Camp!

We are excited for Adventure Campers to join us this summer for a week of fun wildlife discoveries! Every day will be packed with entertaining hands-on activities. Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare for Wildlife Discoveries 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
