Summer Nature Camp – STEAM Camp (July 29-August 2, 2024)

July 29 @ 9:00 am August 2 @ 4:00 pm

Join TBGKids for an interactive, educational, and engaging Summer Nature Camp in TBG’s cozy nature-themed classroom, expansive garden and the nearby ravine.Each week will explore a new theme that will help campers learn from nature. From STEAM camp to a Magical Adventure week, campers will create nature-themed art, learn about plants and animals through hands-on activities, explore the forests and creek, and, of course, have a campfire! Each camper will create a themed craft to take home at the end of the camp day. Please note all camps are peanut and tree-nut free. 

STEAM Camp is a week-long dive into Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Campers will get hands-on with science activities, exploring the natural wonders of the garden and learning from animals’ smart building and problem-solving skills in our engineering challenges. Camper’s will use what they’ve learned to create projects that mix nature, science, and creativity!
