Whether your child is interested in plants, bugs, or birds, this is the camp for kids who love nature! Campers spend the week honing their naturalist skills and developing an understanding of ecology by getting their hands dirty exploring the Garden’s woodlands and wetlands. Sweep net for insects, catch crayfish and test water quality at Morgan Creek, bird-watch, learn wild uses of plants, and keep a nature journal. Guest naturalists and field trips to off-site Garden preserves will enrich our nature study and fun! Session has 16 campers. Fee: $270 ($240 'Household' members)
