Rave reviews from parents of campers

"The camp was educational and fun. It was a special treat to learn about nature and science in one of the most beautiful gardens in the world."

"Clever, unique activities. Now, our daughter loves going to the CBG to share what she learned about the gardens!"

"I think the subject matter was varied and interesting. The access to the outdoors was unparalleled and as always, the CBG facilities are great."

"Kids were so proud to bring home their plants and art projects. My kindergartener was able to tell us some things she learned about pollinators. My preschooler likes the sensory activities and field trip to the cove."

"We will recommend the camp to friends. My son had a great time!"
