Garden Camp Counselor

San Francisco Botanical Garden launched its first-ever summer camp program last year, Garden Camp. While the coronavirus pandemic impacted the start of Garden Camp this summer, the local health orders and new Summer Camp Directive permit summer camps in San Francisco to reopen under strict requirements. Changes to Camp are in process to comply with the Directive and we plan to relaunch Garden Camp in July with two 3-week sessions, starting July 6 and concluding August 14. Garden Camp is returning and will serve rising K-4 th grade campers with an all-outdoors, immersive full-day program. Garden Camp will connect children to plants through a combination of structured, themed activities and open-ended time to develop curiosity, initiative, imagination, and creativity. Curriculum will revolve around four main themes; gardening, art, wellness, and ecology.
