Garden Camp 2022
Garden Camp is back for an exciting summer of outdoor fun and learning for children ages 5 to 10. Connecting children to plants and each other through structured activities and unstructured play amidst plants from around the world, Garden Camp is a place for curious minds, active bodies, and budding artists. With experiences anchored in gardening, ecology, art, and wellness, we strive to enrich the “whole child” and develop deep appreciation for plants, comfort with outdoor learning, and a lifelong love of San Francisco Botanical Garden.
Thank you for an incredible summer!
At this time, we are pausing all camp programming until next summer. Thanks for your patience and understanding. Stay tuned for more.
We'll see you in Summer 2023!

Please note: Campers may only attend for one session of Garden Camp.
In 2022 we are excited to move to a Tier System for the Garden Camp program. Please consider selecting the highest level you can afford, knowing that, in doing so, you are enabling others to participate as well - and our community benefits from greater diversity.
Tier A - $1050: This most closely reflects the market rate of camp pricing and helps enable us to provide a subsidized rate for families in need.
Tier B - $770: Partially subsidized for families needing some support to make camp more affordable. Suggested for families that make less than $128K* annually.
Tier C: Scholarship program only - see details below.
PLEASE REMEMBER: All campers receive the same high quality camp experience regardless of payment tier chosen. Your selection is kept confidential. Members will receive a 10% discount regardless of their chosen tier, which will be applied through a discount code sent out prior to registration.

Garden Camp was thrilled to run during the last two summer seasons despite the ongoing pandemic. We were able to adapt our program to meet all requirements outlined by the Department of Public Health for an exciting summer.
We are looking forward to continuing our commitment to a safe summer camp season.
A few of our adapted procedures are listed here:
Campers and counselors are requested to wear masks during indoor settings.
Campers are kept in stable pods no larger than 12 campers, with 2 counselors each.
Campers are to stay 3 feet apart from each other during lunch and snack.
Counselors and Lead Staff are fully vaccinated.
We will continue monitoring any requirements outlined by the Department of Public Health and will adapt our program as necessary. Thank you for your flexibility as we all strive to keep our children safe!
