As is the Garden’s way, our programming follows the natural progression of seasons. While the growing season from May through August is the busiest time at the Garden, there is plenty to enjoy with us all year round!
School Break Camps
Learning doesn’t need to happen exclusively in the classroom.
The Garden’s school break camps offered for elementary age children in the winter and fall allow them to set the pencils down, bundle up, and get outside to learn and play in nature. Paired with indoor activities like science experiments, cooking lessons, and games galore, what better way is there for your child to spend their school break?
