Garden Adventures Children's Program
Wednesday, July 8, 2020 through Friday, July 10, 2020 – 9:00 am–3:30 pm
Explore. Create. Savor. Appreciate.
This new camp is based on the idea of allowing campers even more time in the gardens. Infuse your camper's summer with a good dose of Vitamin N! Campers enjoy daily garden exploration time guided by campers' interests, games and creative time in the garden, and time to dig in the dirt tending to the Yurt Yard garden.
Campers will be divided into smaller groups based on their ages for smaller group activities but come together for large group activities like morning meetings and lunch and snack breaks.
Enrollment is limited to 20 campers. Campers bring lunch and snack.
