What child doesn't love to discover a butterfly, dig for worms, or hold a frog in their hand?
Our Garden Critters camp builds on that innate curiosity and fascination by providing fun and memorable lessons, critter hunts, and crafts.

Limited to just 10 campers, this half-day, week-long adventure is one of our most popular camps and is now in its third year.
