Winter Break Camp

Cool Science: Camp for Grades K–5

Campers chill out with fun science experiments, games, and hands-on activities during Winter Break Camp. Kids explore states of matter by turning liquids into solids and investigate adaptations that allow plants and animals to survive cold, icy winters. They warm up with visits to the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory tropical and desert collections to compare the plants growing in these environments.

Camps will run concurrent sessions by age groups. Using separate spaces and instructors, groups will have the weekly topic tailored specifically for their age and learning level.

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 water bottle and clothing appropriate 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.
