Garden Critters Registration Opens

January 30, 2023

Our Garden Critters camp builds on a child’s innate curiosity and fascination by finding a new critter each day during garden explorations, lessons, games, and crafts. The camp week concludes with smiles, new friends, and a keepsake craft with each day’s critter.

This half-day, week-long adventure is one of our most popular camps and is a great opportunity to introduce your little garden critter to the Arboretum.

Campers bring a bagged lunch and snack from home. Camp size is 14 campers.

Registration begins on January 30, 2023, for Arboretum members at the Family/Dual level or above.
Public registration begins February 13, 2023.
