Investigate and Explore with ABG!
Let your child become the plant expert on your next hiking or camping trip! Designed for ages 8-13, campers will explore the forest around the gardens learning to identify native plants, invasive weeds and focusing on local pollinators. This camp features two off site walking field trips to nearby Baxter Bog and Campbell Creek. This camp is taught at a more advance level and campers need to be able to hike up to 3 miles a day as well as able to write in and keep a daily journal. All camps take place in our unique garden classroom and on 110 acres of natural Boreal Forest! Expert staff lead campers through fun, hands-on, science-based environmental education activities. All camp materials are provided as well as weekly take-home projects. Adult to camper ratio is 1:8.
Our camps are held outside rain or shine in our tent covered outdoor garden classroom. Campers should pack a lunch and snacks for each day. All campers need to bring extra clothing layers, water bottle, hat, sunscreen, bug spray, closed-toed shoes (no sandals), and a backpack. Please leave all toys and electronics at home.
