Come explore outside with our week-long summer camps for ages 4-12 and a new Green Teen Leader Camp for ages 13-17. During camp weeks, attendees spend about 80% of the day outside (weather dependent) in our 7.5 acres of organic gardens. Campers have fun while engaging in plant and animal themed activities, creative crafts, and plenty of free nature play. We incorporate science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) and social-emotional learning (SEL) practices in our daily activities. We have knowledgeable and experienced staff, low child-to-adult rations, plenty of shade for those hot, summer days, and a reprieve from the heat in our two-story, indoor tropical butterfly house. We also visit other attractions located inside Fair Park, like the Dallas Children's Aquarium.
Camps for ages 4-12 are Monday-Friday from 9:30 am - 3:30 pm, with optional paid pre-care starting at 8:00 am and optional paid post-care ending at 5:30 pm.
Lunch and afternoon snacks are provided daily for ages 4-12. A menu will be provided a minimum of one week before camp. Teens are required to bring their own food and drink.
Ages of camp are camper's age at the time of camp. No age exceptions. Activities are developmentally age-appropriate.
