For the first time, Waterfront Botanical Gardens offered summer camp experiences for young learners over the summer of 2020.

These weeklong, half-day camps included investigative garden activities, craft projects, outdoor movement/play, and opportunities to create lasting friendships. All camps took place at our satellite, living-classroom: The Avish Estate (Harrods Creek, Prospect).

Growing Gardeners

How do you grow a gardener? Fun in the sun, plenty of water, and lots of hands-on gardening activities helped foster skills and build confidence in this week designed to inspire junior horticulturists.
