Families & Kids

Children love spending time outside in nature. The open spaces, endless plant and animal life to take in and explore, and constant sensory input is hard to beat. At the WVBG, there are many opportunities for children to engage their sense of wonder in the natural world.


Children’s Adventure Garden

Opened in 2022, the Children’s Adventure Garden provides an area specially designed for Children to interact with Nature.  The CAG is located near the Education Center, just off the Reservoir Loop Trail.


Summer Nature Camp

We offer a variety of five-day summer camps for children ages four to fourteen where they will learn about, explore, and immerse themselves in the natural world around them.

Fall Children’s Festival

The West Virginia Botanic Garden’s Annual Fall Children’s Festival typically takes place in early October. Bring the family for an afternoon of delight, including fairy house building, seasonal crafts, and delicious refreshments. There may even be some special guests of the four-legged or winged variety. This festival has proven to be a community favorite and grows in popularity and attendance each year.

Other Ongoing Programs

Throughout the year, we offer many other one-day workshops for children. See our current activities schedule for upcoming events.

Another great way for children to learn and explore at the Garden is through a school field trip. Ask your child’s teacher to contact us to set one up!
