SummerCamp

Green House Summer Adventure Camp  

Let’s Grow Together! 

Campers will learn about the importance of native and domestic bees and explore one of the most diverse collections of trees in the country.  They will be digging into the soil  to learn about this important part of our ecosystem. Expert instructors will guide them as they explore all of these topics and more. Plus, campers will have plenty of time for games, sports and crafts.   

For the second year – We are partnering with SLU department to Nutrition and Dietetics to offer one week of Gardens to Tables camp.  In this week, kids will learn about Organic Farming and actually make meals from the plants in the garden.

Join us for one, two or three amazing weeks of fun and adventure!
