This summer we will offer six weeks of Ecology Camp in lovely Lincoln Memorial Garden for children from ages 4 through 15 years. For five fun filled days young campers will explore the Garden by hiking the shady trails and learning more about our native ecosystems. There will be time for making nature arts and crafts, fairy house building and our camp tee shirts, and playing environmental games such as Predator Prey and Owls and Crows. We’ll have leisure time to watch the clouds drift by, to sing nature songs and to play with friends in the great outdoors. The long summer days of Ecology Camp seem to go by so quickly!

Session I for 4, 5, and 6 year olds is half day only. All other weeks are scheduled from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Cost for the half day is $65 per child for Garden members and $85 per child for nonmembers. Full day Sessions 0 and II – VI cost $130 per child for Garden members and $170 per child for nonmembers.

Please check your summer vacations plans and other camp schedules carefully before registering. No refunds can be given.
