Students learn and explore at the Garden's SEED summer camp.

Register Now for Camps in the Garden to Give Kids a Fun, Nature-Filled Summer

Kids explore the Prairie at summer Camp in the Garden

If you want your kids to have a fun, relaxing summer—without completely turning off their brains!—look no further than the Garden’s S.E.E.D. (Summer Exploration, Engagement, and Discovery) Camps in the Garden. Members can register now; general registration opens February 16.

Local parents have loved the Garden’s camps for years, and when they’ve also offered suggestions on ways to improve, the education team listened. “We’ve gotten a lot of requests for camps to run concurrently across different age groups,” says Anna Sorelle, the Garden’s innovative learning manager for special programs. “This is a real advantage for families with siblings of different ages—they can all attend at the same time, making drop-off and pick-up much easier.”

The camp line-up includes both returning favorites and new sessions, including Nature Innovators and Learn, Grow, Eat, & Go! All of our camps focus on hands-on learning that gets kids outside in nature as they grow into young scientists.

An exciting addition to the first three weeks of camp sessions is the involvement of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. As part of their continuing partnership with the Garden, the symphony will offer weekly educational concerts on the sounds of nature.

Camps are offered for children from pre-K through middle school:

  • Camps for younger students incorporate movement and play while teaching E-STEAM (environmental science, technology, engineering, art and math) concepts.
  • The Learn, Grow, Eat, & Go! camps for students ages eight through eleven is inspired by the evidence-based curriculum developed by the International Junior Master Gardener Program. Campers will learn about healthy habits, nurture their own plants, and enjoy dynamic physical activities
  • The Garden’s E-STEAM Explorers Camp for ages 12 to 14 engages students with 3D modeling and printing, project-based learning and engineering design.

Camp sessions run from June 3 to July 12; click here for the the full schedule, camp descriptions and registration links. Members receive discounted tuition, so consider joining today!

We look forward to learning alongside your kids this summer!
