Course Description

Join us for a campout designed especially for families! Pitch your tent on the lawn inside the Children’s Garden and get ready for a night filled with fun.  Visit hands-on activity stations; enjoy snacks, night hikes, and bedtime stories. When you get sleepy, retire to your cozy tent and snooze the night away. In the morning, wake to the sound of birds singing; then enjoy a light breakfast and a chance to explore the Children’s Garden with your family before it opens to the general public.


The campout scheduled for Friday, June 21 through Saturday June 22 has been CANCELED due to threat of thunderstorms.  Please call the Registrar's Office at 630-719-2468 Mon-Fri, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. to move to a future date or request your refund.
