Summer Nature Day Camps (ages 3 to 13)

Join TBGKids for an exciting summer of nature and garden exploration! Kids will unplug and reconnect with nature in the Teaching Garden and the Wilket Creek ravine. They will also play games and create art in TBG’s cozy classroom. Camp days start at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. with the exception of Animal Camp which is from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Extended care is available. Please see below.

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

Extended Care
Busy schedule? Before and after care is available. TBGKids staff will provide supervision for free play and games, crafts and nature activities. Drop-off campers as early as 8:30 a.m. and pick them up as late as 5:30 p.m. Sign-up for extended care when you register for camp.
$60 per camper, per week.

Nature Art Camp (ages 7 to 9)

Nature Art Camp is such a hit every year that we decided to offer it twice this summer. This is a camp for budding artists and nature lovers! Create sculptures with clay found along Wilket Creek, paint watercolours outdoors in the garden, and learn to draw bugs and animals found around the TBG. Friends and family are invited to a gallery show at the end of the week.


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.
