Camps

"My child loved summer camp at RRA! She begged to go back next year, and of course I said yes!"

Whether your child is interested in nature, science, art, or dance, Reeves-Reed Arboretum has a camp for him or her!

Registration for members begins February 15. Non-member registration opens March 1.

New This Summer
For parents looking for a longer camp day, RRA is introducing Lunch Buddies, an hour-long program created for children interested in attending both the morning and afternoon camp sessions.

Creatively Yours Art Studio is offering 7 weeks of art camp in the beautiful gardens of RRA! Combine this camp with one of our morning sessions to create a full-day camp experience.

RRA has teamed up with BOLD Arts to offer a new camp, Fields of Wonder: A Celebration of Nature and the Arts, where children dance, sing, and create using inspiration from nature-themed works of art. The week culminates with a performance created by the campers and instructors.

And once again, RRA is offering a special multi-camp discount! Register for 2 or more camps per family and receive $25 off your total camp purchase. Discount only applies at time of purchase.
