Camps

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

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. Non-member registration opens March 1.  You must be a Family-level member or above to receive the member discount.

This Summer's Highlights:

  • RRA and BOLD Arts have teamed up again this summer to offer another creative performance 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. To see a video of BOLD Arts programs, please click here.

  • Reeves-Reed Arboretum is introducing a new summer camp: Arboretum Afternoons for Pre-K 4 and 5 year olds. With a different theme each afternoon, campers will make unique art projects, get their hands dirty planting in our garden, and spend time in the kitchen cooking and learning about healthy eating. Campers will also spend time outdoors playing nature-themed games and practicing yoga with instructors from LoYa Yoga.

  • Susan Stair, the featured artist for this summer's art installation will be working with campers during our Lenape Ways camp on a very special art project. Ms. Stair's art is inspired by trees used by the Lenape for food and medicine. Campers will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about her art and meet the specimens chosen for Trees as Tonic, this summer's art installation at the Arboretum.

And once again, RRA is offering a special multi-camp discount! Register for two or more camps per family and receive $25 off your total camp purchase. Be sure to use the code MULTI on the checkout page to take advantage of this savings. Discount only applies at time of purchase.
