We’re building the next generation of conservation and environmental scientists, outdoor enthusiasts…and tree huggers.

 

Unlock your child's imagination with interactive adventures in the great outdoors all summer long. Through science experiments, art, and creative play, The Morton Arboretum's exciting camps will inspire your child to become a champion of trees.

With more than 100 camps for children in kindergarten through eighth grade, Summer Science Camp at The Morton Arboretum will stimulate their senses and unlock their imagination.
