Campouts

Scouts or Youth Groups

Campouts are back. Experience the Regenstein Learning Campus the way few visitors can—by sleeping over! Enjoy a low-stress camping experience with flushing toilets and running water. Groups can choose between sleeping outside (these campouts are weather-dependent—bring your own camping gear), or sleeping inside the new building.

Please plan to spend the night, as the Garden is unable to accommodate evening-only participants. Activities are geared for participants ages 6 and up. Cub Scouts and Girl Scout groups or any other youth groups with kids in grades K–5 are welcome to register.

Scouts and youth groups require at least one adult for every five Scouts and each tent must have at least one adult.

Call the Program Coordinator at (847) 835-8239 with questions or to register for a campout. Space is limited; no refunds. Garden Plus discounts do not apply to Scout and Youth Group Campouts. Full payment is due at registration. The Garden has no camping equipment to lend out; gear lists will be sent to registrants.
