Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens Camp is a full day program offered to inquisitive children between the ages of 4 and 11 years.

Arboretum educators will give campers the opportunity to connect with nature through hands-on activities, art projects, and inquiry-based science experiences with a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Design, Math).
