Let’s start celebrating Arbor Day a month early by exploring the trees at Leu Gardens. Weather permitting we will spend the first part of the class in the Gardens checking out the trees and gathering leaves, nuts, etc from the trees for an art project. Then we will come inside and listen to some tree stories, have an art project, and even eat some “tree snacks.” For ages 5-11.

 Summer Camps

Our camps are designed for the child who loves being outside and enjoying nature.  Each camp will go on a morning hunt in the Gardens planned around a daily theme, and then come inside for artwork, activities, games or videos centered on the theme.  The Detectives and Explorers will bring a sack lunch to be eaten outside followed by a scavenger hunt in the Gardens.  Afternoon theme related activities will be spent inside. Healthy snacks and juices will be provided.  Each camp meets in the Palm Room.
