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).
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.
Fables, Flowers, and Fairy Tales
Step into the Garden and onto the pages of some of history’s most beloved children’s stories. Science, art, and dramatic play activities connected fantasy characters to our real-world environment.
Ready! Set! Make!
In this STEM inspired week, campers got a chance to imagine, plan, and create collaborative projects made from natural and recycled materials.
