Camps

"Marilyn and Jackie: Thank you for all your great care and instruction this summer. Claire had a great experience! Every day she was so proud to show what she made or tell us what she learned that day! I love that she's growing up loving to be outside. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Capture the magic of nature at this special day camp! Each day, campers will explore the gardens and trails at the Arboretum, participate in exciting games and activities, and create unique crafts.

Registration for members begins February 15 at 9:00 am. Non-member registration opens March 1 at 9:00 am. You must be a Family-level member or above to receive the member discount and the benefit of registering early.

This Summer's Highlights:

  • This summer marks the 7th year that BOLD Arts and RRA team up to offer another exciting week of performing arts camp! This week's camp will culminate with a performance created by the campers and instructors.
  • Lunch Buddies returns this summer! Campers attending morning sessions (9am-12pm) can bring their lunch, and plan to stay for an additional hour of food, fun and friends! (Cost: $50 per week)
  • Since our Food Explosion camp has been such a success, we are offering TWO sessions again this summer! Each day campers will roll up their sleeves and prepare culinary treats from near and far. Don't wait to sign up, this camp will fill up quickly!

Be sure to use the code MULTI22 on the checkout page to take advantage of this savings. Please note that only one discount can be used per family and applies only at time of purchase.
