Ecology Camp Registration open

This summer we will offer seven weeks of Ecology Camp in lovely Lincoln Memorial Garden for children from ages 4 through 15 years.  For five fun filled days young campers will explore the Garden by hiking the shady trails and learning more about our native ecosystems.  There will be time for making nature arts and crafts, fairy house building and designing your own camp tee shirt, and playing environmental games such as Predator Prey and Owls and Crows.  We’ll have leisure time for capture the flag or watching the clouds drift by and time to play with friends in the great outdoors.  The long summer days of Ecology Camp seem to go by so quickly!
Session 3-AM (8:30am-11:30am) and 3-PM (12:30-3:30) for 4, 5, and 6 year olds is half day and will run Tuesday-Friday only.  All other weeks are scheduled from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m, Monday-Friday.  Cost for the half day is $80 per child for Garden members and $100 per child for nonmembers.
Full day Sessions 1,2,4-7 cost $175 per child for Garden members and $215 per child for nonmembers.

Ecology Camp Update

It is with great sadness we announce that Ecology Camp 2020 has been canceled.  Originally we were going to try for shortened sessions in July, but for the safety of campers and staff the board has decided that option is not feasible at this time.  We are planning on making ‘Ecology Camp at Home’ kits available beginning July 6 so check back for details.  We hope to see you next summer for Ecology Camp 2021.  Thank you for your understanding and continued support of Lincoln Memorial Garden and our educational programming.
