Camps

The New York Botanical Garden is the place to be for spring and summer breaks! Science- and nature-themed Camps for kids in Grades K–8 feature outdoor explorations, science investigations, and behind-the-scenes tours in the Garden’s 250-acre landscape. Each week takes full advantage of the Garden’s vast plant collection and unique habitats like the 50-acre native forest, wetlands, and Native Plant Garden.

Each season offers unique themes for a variety of age ranges.

Face coverings are not required for NYBG visitors. Please keep in mind that many staff and visitors may continue to wear face coverings. If you are sick or symptomatic, we ask you to visit on another day. Your kindness and consideration of others is greatly appreciated.
