Fall Nature Camp

About This Event

Fall Nature Camp at the Arboretum!

This Thanksgiving week, the Arboretum is offering an all new, three-day Fall Nature Camp (Monday-Wednesday). Enjoy fall crafts, learn why leaves change as the weather cools and get outside to explore the Arboretum as birds fly south and stop by Baldwin lake. Late November is the best time to be outside so come join us as we explore fall at the Arboretum!

Whether for your own children or grandchildren, or for the children of your friends or family, our Nature Camp program can motivate, engage, and inspire any of the children in your life.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What does a normal day of camp look like?
Please see our Letter to Parents Describing Camp

Do you offer a complimentary snack?
No, we do not offer snacks for campers because of the growing concern for food allergies.
We recommend packing a snack for your camper.  We have a snack time at around 9:45am and
if your child is going to be staying with us for aftercare until 5:00pm, we recommend
packing a second snack as well.

Can we buy lunch?
We do not currently have a lunch option for Fall Camp

What is the maximum number of campers per day at camp?
We max out at 20 campers per day.

Do you allow 4 year olds at camp?
Our youngest age of camper is 5 years old.  You can sign up a current 4 year old for camp
if they will turn 5 before they attend.

Can I sign up my 12 year old for camp?
Absolutely!  12 year olds are welcome at camp, however, please note that they will likely
be the oldest camper and that camp is structured for 5-11 year olds.  If we have a 12 year
old camper, we do our best to engage them at their level.

Can I get the 10% sibling discount if I purchase camp for my children and my nieces and nephews?
The 10% discount would only be available to your children, not nieces, nephews or other children.

Can I purchase camp for my friends kids under my family membership?
Unfortunately, if you have a family membership, you will only get the membership discount for
your children.

What if my membership expires before the week of camp my child is registered for?
You must have an active membership during the week of camp that your child is registered for.  If your membership expires before your week of camp, you must renew it or you will be charged the non-member price.

Can I purchase camp for my grandchildren under my Senior Membership?
Unfortunately not.  Only Family Memberships and above may get the membership discounts on camp.

What if my child is sick?
If your child is sick, please call in and we will give you a credit for the day or days of camp
your child misses.  There are no monetary refunds.

Is the extended care cost per day?
No, the cost is per week.  Example:  Mornings: 8:00-9:00am; $15 members; $18 non-members.

Are children always under supervision?
Of course! Your child is always being supervised at Nature Camp

Do you ever leave the Arboretum grounds?
No, we always stay within the fenced Arboretum’s grounds

Can my friend pick up my child from camp?
Yes, only if you have notified us beforehand.  We must have this information prior to pick up.
We will not release your child to someone who is not on your alternate pickup list.
