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 open for 2024 summer camps! Space is limited, and advance registration is required.


Upon registration, you will receive an email that includes a welcome letter, a list of items needed for camp, and a link to a form that we are required to keep on file for all campers. Please complete this form at least three days before the start of your camper's session.

“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.”
