2022 Day Camps

Web of Life

All life is connected in some way; most often that connection happens when living things consume their food. Explore the characteristics and needs of herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, and detritivores. Play games, read books, and observe the Garden’s natural spaces to gain a better understanding of how the web of life connects the living things around us!

CANCELED: Session Two: Tuesday, July 19 | 9:30 am–3:30 pm

Plants & Fungi

Have you ever wondered what defines plants, mushrooms, fungus, moss, and algae? This camp will focus on basic groups of plants and other living organisms that are often mistaken for plants by comparing their differences and similarities.

We’ll also explore the question of why some plants flower while others don’t (or don’t seem to)! Learn how to inoculate logs with mushrooms and take home your own plant.

Bee Biologist

The bees are back in town after high demand! Discover the amazing bees that live at the Garden and around the world! Become a bee biologist alongside the Brown County Beekeepers Association as you observe bees on flowers, safely encounter our hives, and learn why bees are so important. Science is hard work, which means we’re going to get hungry – bees have that covered too, we’ll make awesome bee-inspired treats using honey!
