July 14-18 Classes: Ages 5 & 6, 7-9
Gain a raccoon-eye’s perspective as we search for animals and plants that live below our knees. Who knows what we can find as we look for mushrooms, water creatures, millipedes, slugs, ants, squirrel foot prints and other cool things that tall people often miss.

Botany Camp is a morning science program designed for children ages 4-9 to participate in games, crafts and nature walks at the Idaho Botanical Garden.

Each class meets Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM – noon.

Cost for each class: members $65, non-members $90.

The campers are divided into two classes by age. Each class is limited to 20 children and is supervised by an adult teacher and two aides.

Due to high demand, each child may register for no more than two classes. Payment is refundable up to two weeks prior to the first day of camp class, minus a $10 processing fee.
