Junior Gardeners Summer Camp at Sherman Gardens


Start your child on a gardening adventure! During this practical camp for 7-11 year olds, kids learn to care for plants and understand how the choices they make affect the natural world. Topics include carnivorous plants, growing food, worm composting and creating a wildlife friendly garden. Our Junior Gardeners go behind the scenes, meet our Sherman Horticulturists and find out how we create our beautiful garden. This STEAM based camp will develop skills of observation, design and scientific exploration. Each session involves activities in the garden and a fun planting or creative craft project to take home. Expect to get your hands dirty!
