Yes, we want to slow down and enjoy these fleeting spring days, but it’s not too early for parents to focus on summer camps for youngsters. If you have a little one with a green thumb or an interest in bugs, birds and local mammals, summer camp at the San Antonio Botanical Garden might be perfect for your budding gardener or naturalist. Camp options generally fit three age ranges: 3-5 years, 6-8 years and 9-12 years.
The weeklong camps include Junior Naturalist Camp, Junior Gardener Camp and Little Sprouts Camp (for the tiny tykes). Naturalist camp focuses on outdoor skills like birding, native plants and local mammals. Gardener camp focuses on getting down in the dirt with flowers and vegetables.
