Summer Nature Camps

Adkins Arboretum’s Summer Nature Camps give children the opportunity to enjoy their precious summer the old-fashioned way—outdoors! Campers will make new friends and lifelong memories while exploring the Arboretum’s woodland, meadow, stream, and wetland habitats. From grazing on blackberries to splashing in the Blockston Branch, the Arboretum’s Summer Nature Camps provide children with a truly enchanted experience.

Registration is underway! Space is limited, so early registration is highly recommended. Camperships are available for families with financial need.  To learn more, contact Jenny Houghton at

Once you register, look for an email with a link to complete a camper information form. You may also access the form by clicking here


“There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.”
