The Garden classroom stays open year-round and hosts an array of programs led by experts who draw inspiration from our plant collections and the desert environment.
Lifelong Learning
Get inspired and learn new skills through one of our programs in art, gardening, photography, science, travel and wellness.
Desert Landscape School
Gain skills and confidence to get the job done in all aspects of desert landscaping, plus earn a credential after you successfully complete all the certificate programs.
Children, Family & Educators
Families engage in hands-on, nature-based experiences in a fun and safe environment, and teachers can participate in professional development opportunities.
Summer Camp ages 5-12
Each day our campers become scientists as they use their powers of observation in the classroom and on the trail to learn about the world around them. Campers will break out into groups by age to take part in outdoor experiences, children's literature, free choice learning, art projects and more! Snacks are provided. Campers must bring their own sack lunch.

Thank you for your interest in camp! Garden Camp Adventures for Summer 2018 has concluded. Registrations for 2019 will open in February.
