Learn to scuttle like a beetle, wiggle-dance like a bee, and jump like a grasshopper. We’ll spend time in the gardens exploring the secret life of our six-legged friends. You’ll also meet the residents of our worm chalet, and learn about the busy lives of honeybees.

Plant Superheroes
Discover the incredible superpowers of plants, come face-to-face with plants that look surprisingly like their favourite insects, and feed a meat-eating plant. Campers will also create their own plant superhero costumes and take home a plant with superpowers.

Wednesday, March 15
Do you want to learn how to grow your own food, even in winter? During this yummy day we will create and taste all kinds of foods including pesto pasta and salsa with chips. Satisfy your mind and your tummy during this delicious camp. All creations will be nut-free. Campers will take-home an edible plant to care for at home.

Wild in the City
Let’s get wild! Learn what types of animals live in our city, and follow their tracks to see how they move through an area without being seen. Campers will discover and mimic the survival techniques of wild urban animals by engaging in fun outdoor games. Participate in dramatized stories about the city’s wildlife, and make birdfeeders to hang in the Wilket Creek ravine. The day will end with a visit from the Toronto Wildlife Centre and an opportunity to meet a few wild friends.

Friday, March 17
Nature Art

Get inspired by the natural world around you! Campers will learn to draw animals found around the TBG, sketch and paint along the scenic Wilket Creek, and create 3-D art with natural and recyclable items. A great camp for budding artists!

Extended Care
Busy schedule? Before and after care is available. TBGKids staff will provide supervision for free play and light recreational games, crafts and nature activities. Drop-off campers as early as 8:30 a.m. and pick up as late as 5:30 p.m. Sign-up for extended care when you register for camp.


To ensure a safe environment for campers with allergies, TBG requests that all packed lunches and snacks are peanut and tree nut free.

The Toronto Botanical Garden values accessibility and inclusion. Children with special needs are encouraged to participate; however TBG is not able to provide 1:1 support.
