Organized groups of children from community centers, day camps, and summer schools are welcome in the Botanical Garden free of charge.
Summer Camp Groups Invited for Drop-In Program!
This summer, our Bean Sprouts program welcomes all families and summer camp groups to drop by the Children's Garden during your visit to the Botanical Garden. While we are not scheduling formal activities in the Children's Garden this summer, we will have staff and volunteers there to greet you and introduce you to the space! Dig, water, pick, build, explore, and investigate in the Botanical Garden's "YES" space for kids! You are welcome to explore some of our Children's Garden activities here.
Bean Sprouts will take place every Tuesday through Friday, 10am-2pm, and Saturday, from 12pm-4pm beginning June 13.
