Camp Wildflower is an immersive, nature-based learning experience for children entering grades second through fifth. In our gardens, campers can explore the world of native plants, learn about science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), and become lifelong conservationists. We know young minds need a lot of room to grow, and the Wildflower Center is the perfect place for getting in touch with nature and learning through discovery.




Our new Camp Wildflower format includes four days of hikes, plant labs, nature-based arts and crafts, games and more! We also make time for safe, unstructured nature-play along our trails. This summer, we are offering three sessions. Each session covers the same material. 

  • Session 1: June 5 – 8, 2023, Mon. – Thurs., 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Session 2: June 12 – 15, 2023, Mon. – Thurs., 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Session 3: June 26 – 29, 2023, Mon. – Thurs., 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Note: Each session is divided into two groups — second and third graders; and fourth and fifth graders. Please enroll your camper in the group that includes the grade level they will enter in the fall. All campers must be capable of attending a full day of outdoor camp.
