    Let’s ALL go to camp! Created by popular demand, Summer Camp for Adults is a half-day experience that allows grown ups to travel back in time to when they attended (or didn’t get to attend!) summer camp as children- but with an adult twist! Offered on three Saturdays this summer, each experience will include a fun science experiment, a unique nature-based craft, a fun, adult-themed tour of the garden, and a lunchbox full of nostalgic childhood favorites including grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup, goldfish crackers, and more. We will finish off our day with an “adult juice box” of wine in the garden! Each camp date has a different theme. Join us for just one or all of them! You’re sure to have a memorable time.
