Camps at the Garden

As the maximum capacity of camps has been lowered to allow for appropriate physical distancing, many camps have a waiting list. Thank you for your understanding as we do our best to make the safest decision for you and your children/grandchildren. 

With the safety of our staff and participants in mind, we have revised our camp guidelines and will require a health verification upon camper drop off. Please review the new Summer Camp Guidelines and the Program Participant Health Certification prior to attending.

Registration required for all camps. Please review complete the Camp Medical Authorization Form. Scholarships available, please contact us at the information provided below.

Our summer camps are filled with nature-themed games, crafts and unforgettable adventures.

The Garden is excited to offer one day, two day and weeklong camps this summer.  These fun, outdoor camps offer kids a wide variety of activities that utilize the unique landscapes at the Garden in Green Bay. Be ready dig into the dirt and connect with the wonders of the natural world.
