  • Nature, exploration, imagination, and fun are just a few things you’ll find at our Summer Nature Camp. Pack your bag for a week of exploring plants and history throughout the Arboretum. Are you ‘naturally’ artistic? Bring your creativity as we paint, draw, and sculpt crafts of our environment. All activities are led by instructors and guided by counselors. Our camp also has a camper to counselor ratio of less than 5:1, one of the best ratios of any camp in the LA area. So bring your child for some fun and learning at the Summer Nature Camp, here at one of Southern California’s most celebrated gardens!
