Botanical Garden Camps for Kids

We canceled all of our 2020 summer camps out of an abundance of caution. Please check back with us next summer! 

New Orleans Botanical Garden Summer Camps!

Join us at the New Orleans Botanical Garden for a fun-filled summer camp experience that allows campers to explore the natural world and cook up delicious treats in our new outdoor kitchen! Each week features a different, exciting garden theme and includes garden explorations, culinary time, expert guest speakers, journaling, and field trips to popular City Park venues! Ages 6-9 years old.

$225.00 per one week camp 9am-4pm. $75 per camp per week for before-care 7:30am-9am and after-care 4pm-5:30pm.
