Spring Break Camp

Become a Garden Plus member today, and enjoy a special discount.

Children will participate in high-quality learning activities with experienced teachers who use inquiry-based, hands-on activities.

Programming connects nature to a range of themes including art, cuisine, and conservation. This spring, children will have the opportunity to dissect and plant seeds, explore fragrant herbs and flowers, search for birds and early spring plants on nature hikes, take a trolley ride around the Garden, create take-home, science-themed projects, and much more!

Each day offers a different adventure, and for the first time, parents have the flexibility to register by the day.
