Summer Nature Camp

Each summer since 2011, the West Virginia Botanic Garden has offered Summer Nature Camp, and the program continues to grow! All camps are one week long, and exact dates are announced each year in early spring.  Register soon, these popular programs fill up very quickly!

Do you have a child who loves to spend time outdoors exploring nature?

If so, then a Summer Nature Camp at the WVBG may be the place for him or her!

Campers will spend five days at day-camp where they will learn about, explore and immerse themselves in the natural world around them.
